I teach a diverse group of 25 kindergartners in a high poverty neighborhood. Every morning, my students enter our classroom with a lot of energy and an appetite for learning. I can see their eyes quickly scan the room to see what exciting learning opportunities await.
I teach at one of the most diverse schools in the country.
I absolutely love it! My students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, but they all love to learn and experience new things. As their teacher, it is my goal to motivate my students and teach the whole child.
All of my kindergartners come from a wide range of backgrounds, languages, and academic abilities. Many of them come from families living in poverty and face various challenges. I teach English learners and students with special needs such as autism, ADD, and ADHD. All of my students come to school every day excited to learn. They are a great group of kids who love school and love learning!
I believe that education in financial literacy must begin early! In kindergarten, I am teaching the basics of financial literacy. We are learning to count (by ones, fives, and tens), write numbers, add, and subtract. We are also learning to compare numbers and getting an introduction to money. All of these concepts are the foundation of financial literacy. I am requesting binding spines and cardstock to use for financial literacy journals. I would like to have my students start a math journal where they can record what they are learning about money and financial literacy. My students will be able to work out math problems and also solve problems.
By teaching my students financial literacy, I am providing them with basic skills for their future.
I would like to begin using financial literacy math journals in our class. My students will create an interactive journal that will be used for counting, comparing, and computation. I will use the binding spines to make the financial literacy journals for my students. The brightly colored cardstock will be very motivating for my five and six year olds! The use of their very own math journal would motivate my students to learn the basics of financial literacy. My students will be able to learn the foundation of financial literacy and build upon this knowledge. Thank you for your support in helping my class!
