My students need books about money, saving, spending, wants and needs, both fiction and nonfiction. Students need grade-level appropriate books to read and enjoy to help them develop an understanding of financial literacy.
Students at our school love to learn, and having fun while learning is a bonus. Elementary school is a time when kids are figuring out who they are, and how to best represent themselves to others.
21st century learning involves students collaborating in ways they never have before.
Students like to move about the classroom flexibly, stand while they work, partner up to solve a problem, or work alone when necessary. Research shows that students can build independence and feelings of self-worth when they are given choices in the classroom.
The many books requested in this project are about money, saving, spending, wants and needs, will help first grade students learn about and understand money and financial literacy.
Books about saving money, counting money, and spending money wisely will help me teach about these involved topics to young students.
Students as young as five or six can begin to understand about money when they are given the opportunity to read fiction and nonfiction books about the topic.
I want to give my students the opportunity to read and enjoy books about money and to develop an understanding about wants versus needs.
