My Students

I teach at a beautiful school in Florida. I teach fourth grade self-contained, which means that I have to start from scratch when it comes to resources, materials, and technology.

My students receive free and reduced-price lunch due to their parents' economic status.

They attend a Title I school where resources are limited.

My students' love for learning is evident, but exposure to other forms of technology outside of school is close to nonexistent. As a result, my classroom is in dire need of supplies, materials, and especially technology that would assist and enhance my students academically.

My Project

This Financial Literacy: Money Sense books and learning games that I am requesting, will introduce several advanced critical thinking concepts, which can be challenging for many students. In these lessons, my students start with reading, and end with a game to demonstrate mastery.

Using the financial literacy books and games, it is hoped that my students will learn about finances through reading and playing games.

Financial literacy needs to begin in school. By middle school, students should be able to manage decisions around small amounts of money, understand percentages, and build understanding in budgets and savings.

Students in a mild to moderate special education class will be able to build financial literacy skills and use them in real-life situations. These lessons will be modified based on each individual’s skill set. Some students will work on the identification and counting of coins, while other students will work on percentage discounts and taxes in sales, budgeting finances, and saving accounts.

With this financial literacy set of books and games, my students will be able to learn how to make financial decisions.

The cross-curricular books and games use reading, language arts, math, and social studies to introduce students to the basics of personal finance.
