"If a child cannot learn in the way we teach, we must teach in a way that the child can learn." - unknown author
My school has a high percentage of free and reduced-price lunch recipients.
We also have a high diversity of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
This year I have a mixed ability group consisting of nine boys and eleven girls. Some have grasped reading skills at a faster rate than others and some need a little more time. They are eager to learn.
I am requesting books and games about money to teach my students the importance of financial literacy. I believe the earlier we teach about money and the importance of respecting the value of money and hard work the better. I want to teach my students all about the value of saving and learning the importance of working hard to earn money. In first grade we learn the names of coins and the values. They start learning how to add money. Monopoly is a great game for students to learn how to handle money. I am also asking for books and stories about earning and saving. I also am asking for magnetic money to help learn about money.
I would love for my students to have their own piggy banks.
What better way to learn about saving than actually having a place to put their own money. I am asking for piggy banks that they can create on their own. This will help my students take ownership and want to save.
