Financial Literacy with Math Manipulatives in the ESOL Classroom!

My students need manipulatives and games such as Math Equivalency Puzzles, Quick-Pick Money Activity Cards, Double-Sided Counters, Magnetic Coins as well as math mentor texts to explore financial literacy in the ESOL Classroom!

My Students

“A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned” ― Benjamin Franklin. My classroom of fourth grade ESOL students come from countries such as Algeria and Cambodia. As an ELL teacher, I have a diverse group of students from many linguistic backgrounds. My students come to school eager to learn and explore!

My ESOL students want to learn about financial literacy!

Our school community works hard to provide the best possible education for our students! For many of my students, this is their first experience with English. In my school of over 500 students, almost 40% of the students are English Language Learners. There are 15 different language groups in my school. We celebrate the rich diversity of our school community.

My Project

My ESOL students want to learn about financial literacy. My students need manipulatives and games such as Math Equivalency Puzzles, Quick-Pick Money Activity Cards, Double-Sided Counters, Magnetic Coins as well as math mentor texts to explore financial literacy in the ESOL Classroom! My students will learn how to count and budget money using realistic manipulatives. They will have the opportunity to work with their classmates and solve mathematic problems. Students will learn the value of money and how to create a budget. They will practice collaborating with their classmates!

Your donation to this project will help my ESOL students learn the importance of financial literacy!

They will use what they have learned to become financially literate. Students will have the opportunity to work in small groups and collaborate with their peers! Financial literacy will flourish with your help!
