I teach a classroom of six and seven-year-olds in a Title I school that is ninety-four percent free or reduced price lunch. My students and their families live below the poverty level; however, they strive to do their best. Most of my students are struggling emergent readers who don't get to experience a lot of things that other students their age across the country get to experience. I hope to bring as many experiences as possible to my students.
Our classroom is a family that loves and respects each other.
Peer to peer tutoring is accepted and enjoyed. My students love learning from other students in the class. They appreciate help and feel loved when they get that special peer to peer help!
My students come from very high poverty, and do not get many real world experiences with financial literacy. I feel responsible to expose them to as much as I can to the world of finance. I would like to have supplemental materials to teach my first grade students financial literacy skills such as spending, saving, and counting money.
We will use money bingo, the match game, and money flashcards to help reinforce the skills we learn about money in the classroom.
In addition to these supplies, they will be able to take home some of the supplies to help them practice their skills at home as well.
Thank you for considering my first grade project this year.
