My Students

My students are adventurous fifth graders who are ambitious and fun loving. This group of students is extremely special to me as I have been their teacher for not only 5th grade, but also 4th grade. Through this experience, I have learned a great deal about how amazing each and every one of them are. Even while 72% of the students receive free and reduced lunch at our school, the student's optimism and passion for learning never falters.

These students are truly remarkable in every way and deserve the best learning environment possible.

The 26 students I've gotten to share the past two years with have grown so much as individuals and together. They are dreamers, thinkers, doers, and a very self-motivated bunch. Thus far, they do not even realize all that they are capable of.

My Project

This project will allow for my students to have the opportunity to apply their math skills while promoting financial literacy. We will be able to embed financial literacy into our math block. By playing games, the students will have built-in engagement while learning money management skills with games such as Payday, Monopoly, Life, and Daytrader.

The financial literacy games will encourage my students to become more financially aware as the games will require them to gain an understanding of creating and maintaining a budget.

I believe that these games will allow for my students to gain skills necessary to navigate the financial systems in today's society. The games allow for them to use math in real-world situations such as helping students to practice the fifth grade standard of adding and subtracting decimals.
