My Students

We need to expand our mathematics and technology educational experiences by creating a technology based friendly learning environment. We love to use our chromebooks to participate in 21st century online learning. We hope to add hands on financial literacy games and book activities that can enhance our learning by doing hands on as well online classroom and school learning activities.

We are a bustling class of 20 eager learners.

We are very enthusiastic and energetic first graders. Our class loves to create exciting and mind building learning situations teaching us to think outside of the box. Challenging ourselves to become stronger learners more aware of our environment and become more actively engaged in the process.

Designing a environment that is 21st century technologically friendly and inviting; while building a mindfulness in attitude and thinking strategies allows us to engage and enhance our learning at a much higher.

With new financial literacy books and games they will allow us to create an enriching learning environment that will develop a more Math and Financial Literacy involvement focusing on our future and how the daily use of hands on and technology will lead the way in the many things we do.

My Project

Our classroom has developed a classroom economy system. Students design the types of jobs and ways to earn money for classroom jobs, pay rent (usage of desks), as well as receive fines for breaking classroom and school rules. We have a classroom suggestion box and have an opportunity to use their money to purchase items from the class store.

The items I am requesting will help improve our class economy system, as well as increase my students' economic literacy through games and books.

The banking box will be used by our classroom bankers to cash in bucks earned to purchase items or pay fines. The pencil pouches will act as wallets for students' money, while the calculators will be used in the student store.
