My Students

My students regularly deal with trauma in many forms: poverty, homelessness, hunger, abuse, imprisonment of family members, etc. Their young minds often find it difficult to concentrate on their studies for any length of time.

All of my students qualify for free and reduced-price lunch.

Often, school meals are the only food they eat in a day. Concentration and putting forth the energy needed for learning is difficult, although they are curious. My students crave new experiences and information.

My students like to experiment with different types of technology and media. I love watching them make connections in our ELA center activities.

My Project

Our class needs to learn the value of a dollar. We have not done a great job of taking care of property this school year. We will learn both by purchasing our own games and selling them to classmates.

Our math curriculum does not include a money topic, so we plan to install a classroom consumer project to learn about various aspects of money.

From the actual value of dollars and coins to the value of something that we have worked hard for, our Classroom Consumer project will teach the difference between purchasing products and experiences; consumables versus durable goods; and profit and loss.

Your donation will help me provide products and experiences, games and activities, that I think my students might want to invest in and market throughout our project.
