Counting in Kindergarten

My students need Lakeshore Counting Boxes to learn about financial literacy.

  • $293 goal

This project expired on July 31, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students represent a variety of cultures including Marshallese, Latino, European, Asian, and African American. Many of them are second and third generation immigrants who are transnationals.

Despite their differences, eighty-five percent of these students live in poverty and more than sixty percent of them are English Language Learners.

Most of what they believe and value with respect to diversity comes from their caregivers. Opportunities for building their schema about the world has been very limited, resulting in underdeveloped vocabulary, social skills, and sheer academic knowledge.

My Project

Children in kindergarten find financial literacy a hard concept to understand. Having the Lakeshore Counting Boxes will provide the opportunity for students to practice sets to number concept. My students enter kindergarten with many different levels of number sense. Having different hands on activities like the Counting boxes will keep students excited about counting while playing a game. These “games” concentrate on number sets one to ten.

Students will understand the concept that numbers are a set of objects.

This is the foundation to higher Math concepts that include addition and subtraction. The understanding of financial literacy is important for my students.
