My Students

I teach at a Title I elementary school in rural Texas. All of our students receive a free breakfast. We have a high population of students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. I teach students who come from various socioeconomic households, who sometimes lack the needed support at home. Despite setbacks, I am so thankful that they come to school eager to learn and do their personal best.

I want each of my students to know they can achieve success and that I believe in each of them.

We are a diverse community of learners reaching across the spectrum of ability levels, race, and socioeconomic levels. My second graders are excited about learning. Together we are working as a team in order to show growth and reach the goals we have set.

My Project

My students need financial literacy games that teach about money and to get them thinking about saving for their future. With the funding of this project, I would encourage my students to use these games to enhance their knowledge of financial literacy. Melon Rind Clumsy Thief, money cards, Buy It Right, Exact Change, coin ink stamps and other money related items will focus on such financial skills as counting money, saving, and spending. The games will also, initiate great conversations in class for enhanced learning. The glue will be use in some of the cut and glue math stations.

These games will help reinforce the importance of money and how to properly spend and save it.

By using these games, children will be able to grasp a better understanding of how important it is to save money. This also lends itself to discussion such concepts as the difference between wants and needs and charitable contributions.
