I had a great time at MACUL, learning about various technologies as well as sharing how my students and I utilize various tools in our classroom to leverage our time together into a lasting impact.
I also found out that our project on DonorsChoose was fully funded as a result of a generous donor, Elsa, who gave to all Michigan projects as a way to celebrate the #bestschool day campaign!
The project we had funded had been posted ever since this past Fall when I had returned with a cool scarf I had made during the MAEA conference. My students were so excited about it, they wanted to create a "Think it Up" project on DonorsChoose so we could get the materials and do it at our school as a part of our Fine Arts Night. Even though I had over half of the project funded before the #bestschoolday campaign, we were left with $567 still to fund and only about two weeks left to do it.
That all changed yesterday, thanks to Elsa!
I am so thankful for everyone who helped make this project possible for my students and for DonorsChoose providing a space where I can get new materials to implement projects I learn about when I go to conferences in my classroom with my students.
We are so excited to be able to bring this project to our Fine Arts Night and will be sure to post the pictures as soon as we start testing out the materials!
