"The single biggest difference between financial success and financial failure is how well you manage your money. It's simple: to master money, you must manage money."
- T. Harv Eker
My students are limited in many resources at home and at school because of the low-economic area they live in.
Some of my students are English Learners and need visual and auditory aids to better learn math concepts. As their teacher and role model, I want to ensure my students are on a path to being successful adults. Many of my students, because of their disadvantaged backgrounds, have little to no opportunities to learn about financial literacy. They spend their allowance or parents' earnings on toys or snacks without thinking about the consequences of how these small expenditures can add up over time.
My students need two laptops to access online, kid friendly financial literacy activities. It is important to teach students the value of saving money early on, to save for important things in the future such as a college education. The possibilities are endless when my students can use the laptops to access online financial literacy activities. The students will become financially literate as they engage in games and activities that teach them about budgeting, credit/debit, and saving.
I am requesting these laptops to teach financial literacy in a fun 21st century way to my students.
Studies have shown that students who are financially literate become financially responsible young adults regardless of income level.
