Does Money Grow on Trees?!

Help me give my students learn about finances and how they can earn money in the future with different careers.

My Students

We have a diverse group of Pre-K students who are ready and excited for school! With your support, they can grow, learn, and spread their excitement for education into their future academic career. Pre-K is a special place for children to learn how to get along with others while building self-confidence and self-esteem. They learn how to socialize with others, manage disagreements, and build key communication skills needed in the future.

We are curious and active learners who love to make new discoveries by exploring our surroundings.

It's hard for a four-year-old to sit and listen to a lecture. That's why we learn through play!

Our classroom materials are essential to our learning process, offering us tools that support role-playing, creating, building, social-emotional skills, reading and writing skills, language skills, and math skills. Through play, the students make observations and discuss what they notice. Through our discussions, they draw conclusions that help them to make sense of the world and learn each day.

My Project

Students understand the fact that we need money to buy things. Things they need, things they want, things just for fun! But the million dollar question is where do you get the money?!

Help my students learn about different careers they can pursue in order to be financially successful in the future.

By learning how to earn money students learn the importance of saving and the value of a dollar. There is no better way to learn about financial literacy than to understand the value of a job. Help my students learn about different careers they can pursue to be financially prepared for the future!
