Choices, Decisions, and Scarity...Oh My!!!
My students need 2 electronic monopoly games, 4 make your own opoly games, a set of the If you give books, and carpet for the classroom to participate in this project.
I participated in an Economics conference this summer where I learned about all of the hands-on and engaging activities to use with the If You Give book sets, so I had to request one for my new classroom. The monopoly games and create an opoly game help teach my students about the real world.
My students are 9th graders in a community in the South.
My 9th graders only have 10% of their class reading at or above their grade level. These low reading levels also have a negative effect on our students' writing abilities. Most of my students are of low socioeconomic status and many of their parents have just a high school diploma. It is hard teaching Economics with my students but my solution is to make it fun, relevant, and interesting for them so that they are learning and not even knowing it.
I teach Economics and I am searching for a way to engage my students more in class. The set of books is requested to help my students understand simple economic terms, like scarcity and opportunity cost, which are shown throughout this book series. There are so many economic activities in these books. I will enjoy teaching them and my students will enjoy learning. I am requesting a set of monopoly electronic edition games to help my students learn about debit and credit as well as critical thinking and problem solving, as they develop their strategy to win. I am requesting a carpet to go in my classroom to help my students feel more invited and more a part of the classroom. The create your own opoly game is requested because it will be the ultimate test of my students as they create a monopoly board for our city, state, region, and country. This task for my students will be the most fun yet tedious task they undertake this semester.
Your support is very important to my classroom.
Without it, I would not be able to help my students as much as they need. The school district currently has disallowed the $300 allotted for school supplies for each teacher. So, this avenue is my only option to help my students. Won't you please help my students?
