My Students

My students are enthusiastic about learning. They are investigators who are searching for answers. My students thrive on creativity and being pushed to achieve at high levels. My students exert their creativity into daily assignments. My students require innovative teaching strategies to keep them interested, involved and actively participating

I want my students to feel successful and enjoy the process of learning.

My classroom is a diverse group of learners coming from various backgrounds however they all have a distinct desire to learn and are curious about the world around them.

My Project

My students will use these money games and manipulatives to learn about real world money situations and have tactile practice handling money. My students learn best from hands on learning experiences- they are visual and kinesthetic learners who need movement and tactile activities.

My students learn the most when they are applying their knowledge in a creative way!

My students enjoy learning and are eager to learn more. They are interested in the world around them and want to know how things work. Applying these money manipulatives to real world situations will help them understand in a unique way which they will remember.
