Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach an awesome and eager group of kindergarten students in an inner-city school where 100% of students receive free school lunch. Most of my students come from a family background where they lack academic and financial support to enrich their academic studies. The majority of these students come from families where parents are too busy working and lack the language or education to help them with their schoolwork. Therefore, the role of the teacher is extremely vital to their learning.
Despite these setbacks, my students are motivated learners who rely heavily on teachers and school support to help them become successful in life.
Our school motto is to be respectful, responsible, and scholarly. In order to help them achieve these goals, I must provide them with the best classroom environment, full of the proper supplies and guidance.
Financial literacy starts when students learn all the basics of math including counting, adding, and subtraction! And kindergarten is the perfect time and place for students to build a strong math foundation by learning these basic skills. I am asking for these rekenreks to help my students continue to learn to master these very important basic skills. The rekenreks will be very useful for my students to manipulate, maneuver, and play around with while learning how to add and subtract.
The rekenreks will help my students build a strong foundation of number sense so they can achieve financial literacy throughout their lives.
