My Students

I work in a small, fully inclusive charter school, where almost seventy percent of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch. I work with students who are labeled in many ways: ELL, LD, ID, BIP, IEP, SLP, apraxic, autistic, ADD, ADHD, ODD, and the list goes on. I'm working to help students remove their labels and find their feet, as well as their voices.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds, but one thing they have in common is their thirst for creative learning opportunities.

My Project

These resources for money related novels, picture books for our read about math station, and storage. Too often students think "Money Grows on Trees". They don't realize where and how money works in the real world! It is time to focus on this issue now.

Yellow is the new green!

These novels pertain to a lemonade stand, handling of money, and planning. These stories will be a basis for how we can set goals, budget, and increase our profits with something as simple as a lemon. This will be part one in a two part project to get kids thinking bigger than 3rd grade. Storage for our classroom novels is essential to maintaining any type of order. The star of this project is the literature I want to put into my stands hands- with your help!
