My students live in a very high-crime and impoverished neighborhood. My school has been hit hard by budget cuts. Even with all of the world's problems weighing heavy on them, my students are the most motivated, positive and enjoyable people to be around. They deserve every advantage that I can offer them. That is why I try hard every day to give them the best education possible.
As a teacher in a low-income and high poverty neighborhood, my students needs all the resources they can get their hands on.
We want to build a full classroom library of games and to teach our students about financial literacy. April is Financial Literacy Month and we really want to partner up to make the most of this opportunity. The goal is to play board games in class. Monopoly will help us learn financial literacy and Life helps us work through real life decisions.
Through games like Monopoly, Life, and Pay Day I will teach students the difference between assets and liabilities.
We will go over all the rules to the games and set the expectations on learning about finances. Students will use the games to develop buying, trading, and selling skills while playing fun games at the same time.
