Most of us could use more money for our classrooms. Whether we need to by basics like tissues and glue or we need funds to take students on a field trip, there is grant money available that can help us out. I have done some research and want to share some of the sites I have found with you. You will still have to invest the time to apply, but hopefully this post will save you some valuable time.
One thing to keep in mind about grants is that many ask for very similar information. Keep this information in a Google Doc so that it is easy to get to. You can easily keep track of demographic information in a Doc as well. Just remember to update it each year.
