My Students

My students are RSP (Resource Students) who have learning disabilities which include ADHD, Autism, Sensory difficulties or Spina Bifida. My students need small group or 1:1 attention to achieve the requirements of the new Common Core Standards. My students mostly have problems with the English Common Core or the reading and understanding of math word problems. Most of my students have difficulties writing and being able to put their thoughts into an essay that is acceptable.

My students are Kindergartners to 5th graders.

They strive to do their best, but sometimes get frustrated when they are unable to keep up with their fellow peers in class. Computers are an essential part of the new common core and there is not enough technology to go around to always support my students' needs.

My Project

These materials will help my students learn how to make proper financial decisions about their future. The resources will help me introduce how to make and spend money wisely. These materials will help my students learn in a fun and exciting way while learning how to prepare for their future.

Financial planning is a big thing that students have to think about as they grow up while attending school.

The Economy hands on kit and the Money game will help students while they are in elementary school to learn how to save the money that they will earn when they begin in the workforce. The hands on Money kit will help my students with a program that I use where students earn and buy things based on their academic performance. Please help me help them be more financially prepared.
