Send the Magic School Bus soaring!
This is how it works: I've set a goal: $4000. I'm averaging 400 readers per day, so that's $10 per reader... not even the cost of a movie ticket here in New York. I browsed the proposals on DonorsChoose and picked out a few to start with. It's vacation, and I'm feeling ambitious, so I think I'll profile one proposal every couple of days (we'll see if that really happens once school starts again). Here's my challenge to you: click on one of the many buttons I've dropped around the site - or click here - and give ten dollars (or more) to help these teachers improve science teaching & learning in New York City! (I already started it off...)
Proposal of the day: Budding Six Year Old Scientists Need Your Help!
I teach kindergarten in Brooklyn, NY. At our school, Science is considered a cluster class, meaning a different teacher provides instruction to my students. Unfortunately, my class was one of the several kindergarten classes left out of the science rotation this year. My proposal is to fund hands-on science experiment kits from Delta Education so that I can effectively provide my class with the instruction they are missing out on.
