Closing the Financial Literacy Gap

My students need educational books to increase their knowledge about financial literacy and financial games to practice mathematical skills.

My Students

Nearly 95% of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch, and many of my students experience challenges from living in a high-poverty community. However, my 21st-century students will have their basic needs met.

For my students, opting out is not an option.

They are always putting forth their best. The student population is very diverse. For instance, they all have different learning styles and interests, and some students are from outside of the U.S such as Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Mexico, and Africa. They have a variety of experiences to contribute to the school and classroom community, and it is necessary to have the appropriate materials to meet the uniqueness of every student.

My Project

These materials will help to improve my students understanding of financial literacy. They will be able to understand how finances work by reading different books, playing games that involve financial decisions, and participating in different activities. The books that I have chosen provides students with information about how to save and invest their money. Some of the book relate directly to the student population. In addition, the students will be able to have fun while learning about financial literacy by playing games such as Monopoly or Around the World.

The first step to understanding finances is increasing the students interest.

These materials will allow me to integrate math into the ELA classroom. Thus, the students will not only be learning about ELA but ELA and math in the same class.
