You Should Apply for that Grant!



            I was so excited a few week ago to find out that I received a Wal-mart grant I applied for.. I didn't receive the full amount that I requested, but I received 500.00! I went to Walmart last night and spent three hours deciding how I was going to spend the money on my classroom.

Lastly, 5 packs of paper, label maker refill, post-it tabs, 24 expo markers, laminator machine, 100 laminator packets,  10 CDs, 6 packs of colored paper, and a case of paper! 


  Now it is your turn to have a shopping spree. To apply for the grant I applied for go here. I applied for the community grant.  You will need the following before you start: 

  • An idea: What do you want to do with your students? 
  • Amount: How much do you need to complete to your project? (You may not get all you request, but some is always great)
  • Tax Exempt information

      I hope to hear about some awesome teachers getting some grants for their classrooms.
