Financial Literacy Part 2
My students need an iPad and protective accessories to utilize apps for the development of financial literacy.
Help my young learners develop financial literacy by providing resources that they can use to understand the basic concepts behind numbers, quantities, addition, subtraction and money!
I teach a transitional kindergarten (TK) class for our school.
This is a new grade level in California, developed for "young" five year olds to help bridge the gap between preschool and academic kindergarten. I teach at a wonderful, multi-cultural, public school located in the San Fernando Valley. We are a high poverty school, and many of my students come from economically disadvantaged homes. My class includes students that are both English and non-English speakers, as well as students with disabilities. All of my students are anxious and excited about learning and coming to school!
In part 1 of this proposal, I received an iPad and math resources such as literature, Math Their Way, and manipulatives to help my students develop strong basic number concepts, which will start them on the road to learning financial literacy. This second iPad will help me in this endeavor by providing fun apps that the children can use to learn money and math skills. "Learning Money With Leo" and "Jungle Coins" are two such apps. These apps teach money concepts in fun ways, and were developed for young children.
The iPad can be used in so many wonderful ways to help students learn. It is my goal to eventually have a set of six in the classroom to establish a technology center for a group of students to work independently on math apps while I am working with other students.
In addition to the iPad, I am requesting protective accessories, to keep the iPad safe as it is used by little hands.
By funding this proposal, you will be giving my students an iPad that they can use to learn about money and number concepts, to help them develop financial literacy.
All of these materials can be used over and over, with students in the future. CreditReport.com is generously offering to help fund projects that promote financial literacy. With your generosity, you can help bring these wonderful resources and technology to my classroom. Thank you!
