The students of our inner city school have immigrant parents of a low socioeconomic status.
Parents often work two jobs so students are often latchkey kids or watched by grandparents.
They are English Language Learners. We are a Title I school. All of our students qualify for the free meal program. Many of my students are struggling to learn and understand the English language.
Even though I am a veteran teacher, it's always important to change with the times. The change this year is that we will be working in small groups rather than whole group during math. I need to read on ways I can teach my students about money and financial literacy.
We currently use a money system for attendance, assessments, and acts of kindness but I would like to find other ways to use money and math in the classroom.
The TeachersPayTeachers gift card has numerous activities that deal with financial literacy. Since I will be working in small math groups, these teacher created downloads can be used in my independent groups. There are money downloads that deal with budgets, savings, real-life scenarios, and problem-solving dealing with money. TeachersPayTeachers is the go-to place for educators to find the resources, knowledge, and inspiration they need to teach at their best.
