Class Store for Promoting Financial Literacy

My students need money books, markers, pens, crayons, Slim Jim originals, and other snacks for our classroom store to promote financial literacy.

My Students

I teach at a Title I elementary school in rural Texas. All of our students receive a free breakfast. We have a high population of students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. I teach students who come from low-socioeconomic households, who sometimes lack the needed support at home. Despite setbacks, I am so thankful that they come to school eager to learn and do their personal best.

I want each of my students to know they can achieve success and that I believe in each of them.

We are a diverse community of learners reaching across the spectrum of ability levels, race, and socioeconomic levels. My second graders are excited about learning. Together we are working as a team in order to show growth and reach the goals we have set.

My Project

I want to begin now to instill the importance of financial literacy in my students' lives so that it will continue as they get older. They have the opportunity to earn classroom bucks for their behavior, attendance, participation in class, turning in homework, making good grades on specific assignments, and solving math problems. My Star Scholars need these supplies and snacks for our classroom store to help promote counting money as well as adding and subtracting skills. The students will help me decide on reasonable prices for the items. The markers and crayons will cost more classroom bucks. The gel pens will be sold individually at a cost lower than the sets. I believe it is important for my students to play a role in helping to decide the cost for the items. Our money books will be used in our shared reading time and placed on our book cart for students to read during their free or independent reading time.

My Star Scholars need to know the advantages of having good money managing skills because it is an essential component in life.
