My Students

My class consists of a diverse group of learners. My classroom has 26-second grade students with varying abilities. The socioeconomic background of our students is more than 90% poverty level. I teach in an urban inner city school rich with diverse cultures from all over the world. Most of my students need additional learning materials to meet grade-level expectations. Our school saying is Better today than yesterday! Better tomorrow than today! I want to make their tomorrow BETTER!

My Project

My students would benefit from having engaging materials to learn about financial literacy. Teaching second-graders about finance is a very important real-life skill. Being able to count money correctly is important to everyone!

Using engaging materials like the Money file folder games, Count It Up Money Rods, and Allowance Games will keep kids engaged and learning!

My students will enjoy using activities from the Money Hands-On Kit and the Money Activity Station as well as the Money Instant Learning Center to learn about finances. Students will be working in cooperative groups using the Allowance Game and Quick Pick Money Activity Cards.

My second graders need financial literacy learning games to help them achieve grade level standards. Students need to master counting change and making money combinations in Gr 2 so they’re ready to further their learning in upper grades.

Financial literacy is a real life skill that students enjoy learning in the classroom.
