Five for Friday (Linky Party.. Oh Yeah)

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday, Yeah!

Our Donors Choose project for our writing center got funded and the materials just arrived!!!  This has been an amazing year with Donors Choose, we are so lucky to have been able to get 2 projects funded for this school year!  We are truly blessed and appreciate it all the love, support, and donations!

This little manzanita centerpiece was one of my DIY projects 3 summers ago when I was trying to figure out what type of centerpieces I wanted for our wedding.  I never did end up using it, but I LOVE my manzanita tree.  I change it up and decorate it every month, just for fun.  Can you see the small heart clips?;)
I made these shapes posters in the summer, but never did have time to complete the whole packet...I was finally able to sit down and finish it up this week.  My kiddos are going to be so excited to learn and review more shapes!

  1. Wow! You got a lot of wonderful items from your Donors Choose Project! I really need to do this! I am most of your projects get funded by strangers or by people you know that donate to your cause?? Do you tell your students' parents about the project in hopes they will donate? I would love to know more! Love your wall! And, I love Hobby Lobby, too! So fun!

    Have a great week!

    1. Hi Beth!!

      I really recommend trying it, it's worth it! My first 2 projects were funded by friends and random donators that found my project on Donors Choose. The last 2 projects were funded by friends and the students' families. I let the families know through Reminder 101, a letter, and even an email. Just to get the word out for donations. Let me know if you have any other questions about Donors Choose, I'm here for you if you need any help in getting started!:)
