Grant Writing Success!

This past school year, Myself along with the APS grant writing team wrote a technology grant. We wrote them in hopes of having 18 ipads funded. We sent them to our local Representatives and our Senator. We sent three grant. If all of them were funded we would have 18 ipads. Before school was out I got word from Representative Rich that he would love to fund our AATI grant!! I am still talking to Senator Scofield about funding the project. The grant writing team is very excited about the six ipads we have coming our way. We are going to put the on a cart so teachers can wheel them in their room  and use them in a center or at small group. We will have to split them between first and second grade. Also, My sweet parents heard me talking about how great an Ipad would be for my classroom. They surprised me last week with my own personal one. I have great parents!!! We hope to get the six Ipads at the beginning of the year.

I can't believe it is almost August!! I have been working in my room a lot, but  I still have a ways to go.

Here are some updated pictures to show my progress!!
