I found out today that another DonorsChoose project of mine has been fully funded! I put in a request for 15 copies of From the Mixed-up File of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. I have so many ideas for student activities and projects to go along with this book. I have been learning about creating pageflakes. I might even do one for activities and critical/creative thinking questions to go with this book.
What I think is really neat about the fulfillment of this DonorsChoose project is that it came from lots of people contributing small amounts. Collaboration seems to be an ongoing theme at my school this year, and getting the funding for this project is a good example of what can be done by several people working together.
