My Students

My students need to learn about Financial Literacy. While teaching money management skills, I plan to use board games. My students love to have fun, to help them learn, and help them learn the concepts of normally dry and boring number churners, I will have them play Clumsy Thief, Monopoly, Pay Day, and other finance-based games. In New Orleans, we are a high poverty, high achieving school. We need to make learning "authentic" and relevant to the 21st century.

We have a few old math games with missing pieces at school, so we need these nice math games to teach financial literacy.

The majority of my students come from a low-income, urban community, yet they continue to strive for improvement.

My parents are fully on board. My students deserve the best; my parents wish for something more than testing and love hands-on projects, these math games will teach them financial literacy. These strategy games will brighten their day and make it worthwhile as they will become thoughtful and responsible with their finances. We all will benefit with a responsible and informed citizen in the near future!

My Project

We need three OtterBoxes for iPad safety and awesome math games like Payday, Buy It Right, And Clumsy Theif Adding to 100.

We are an awesome class of gifted students who need a few essential games and it is important for me to have enough games for them to all be able to play at once, and rotate between different games.

I really believe that students learn in a multitude of ways and bringing board games into the classroom will help students work through learning financial literacy and making life decisions. Students in my gifted class will be able to play board games while completing assignments that document their life experiences and help them reflect on life choices while playing the game of Life.

Strategy Games like Allowance, Monopoly, Life, Exact Change, Clue, and Payday will help my students learn financial literacy and will help my students to work through real-life decisions while doing real-life math projects using money and being responsible.

My students will be learning about payday, savings and loans, interest, debt and managing money and becoming responsible citizens. I am going to have a Parent/Student workshop where we will read 'Today I Teach Financial Literacy: Parent And Child Money Management Workbook' Kindle Edition by Dr. Chavah Horowitz. We will be playing Payday, Monopoly, Clue, and Game of Life together.

These games will help my students make better life decisions and better financial decisions while playing strategy games with their friends and peers. Their social skills will be promoted since my gifted students are always taking online tests and doing paperwork and barely get a chance to interact with each other.
