My Students

I teach fourth grade at an awesome Title I, neighborhood school in Coconut Creek, Florida. My students are a diverse group with various learning needs and challenges. Many come from different countries. For many of them English is their second language. My students are motivated by hands-on, real-world, engaging activities. They love reading and math and learning new concepts daily.

We are a Title I school which means that more than 60% of the students receive free or reduced-price lunches.

My Project

Children today need to become financially literate. Learning how to manage their money and maintaining a good credit score is important for their future success in our society.

Technology (iPads) are a great way for students to grasp the concept of financial literacy.

Through app games, students will learn how to save and invest. They will also learn the difference between wants and needs.

The free apps my students will be using are:

* Jurassic City Builder where students create their own city and have to be able to manage the finance of their city.

*Money Mammals Needs VS Wants, this will teach students the difference of wanting something VS needing something.

*Show Me the Money, this app will help students understand why saving is important.

These games will allow the students to understand financial literacy in a fun way and at their level of understanding.
