My Students

I teach at a great school with students who love learning! They are enthusiastic about learning and love coming to school every day. My students live in a small, rural community. I teach in a school with over 200 students. Our school has a high poverty rate, with a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

Our school is a wonderful place, filled with great teachers and staff that value all students.

However, because of recent budget cuts, we are unable to purchase additional resources such as the ones requested. This project would help my young students learn about financial literacy by purchasing coins, play groceries sets, and Ipad to use for games to enhance their finance skills.

My Project

My students can learn about financial literacy even in kindergarten! It is never too early, because Kindergarteners can learn about financial literacy, too! My kindergarteners are mostly five year old students beginning to grasp early math concepts such as counting, number recognition, and more / less. These are foundational skills. The materials in my project will help my students remain hands-on, while helping them learn!

In kindergarten, learning is fun!

The resources requested show this! The math activity tins and center activities will help students learn about number quantities. The cash register allows them to play with money, and become familiar with how much the amounts are worth. The tracing books will help students with their counting and number recognition.

I will be able to teach my students about spending and about math concepts. I will be able to teach them about the basics of financial literacy and how these foundational skills go hand-in-hand with what they are learning in the classroom. Thank you for your support and for showing that kindergarteners can!
