My students attend a Title I school in Pennsylvania and all receive free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast. They attend a typical, inner-city school. Most face serious obstacles before they even walk through the doors in the morning. Our goal is to make our school a safe and loving environment.
Our students come from diverse backgrounds and different countries.
This makes our school pretty special in so many ways. The students all work so hard and are very deserving of this project.
Financial literacy is one of my favorite topics to teach because it's all skills that these students really need to learn. Playing games like Monopoly will help to teach students life skills while allowing them to have fun. We will set up different gaming stations and the students will compete for a few weeks. They will have a chance to go from one game if they win to the next. When the kids finish their gaming session they will be required to talk about which game they played and what they learned. They will be asked to compare the game to real life. This will give them an opportunity to present to the class and compare their experiences.
