Description: The Kids In Need Foundation introduces a new teacher grants program sponsored by Elmer's Products Inc., an industry leader in adhesives, arts and crafts, office and educational products. You can apply for an Elmer’s Teacher Tool Kit grant that can range from $100 to $500. The grants will be given to teachers who wish to conduct classroom projects selected from a catalog of more than 500 projects. There is also a link to this application on the Elmer’s website, www.elmers.com, and X-ACTO website, www.xacto.com. This year, approximately 250 grants sponsored by Elmer’s will be provided to teachers nationwide for projects to be completed during the upcoming 2011-2012 school year. For 13 years, Kids In Need has been funding exceptional classroom projects through our Teacher Grants program. Now the funding to conduct these projects in your own classroom will be available. We believe creative lesson plans should be an active part of any school’s core curric ulum, something Elmer’s believes, also. Together we will provide teachers with the tools to strengthen critical thinking skills, creativity, and core knowledge among students.
