Financing in Kindergarten

Help me give my students an Apple iPad to learn about financial literacy in class.

My Students

I am a Kindergarten teacher in a Title I school district. Ninety-five percent of my students receive free breakfast and lunch daily. The students on my campus are identified as living at a low socio-economic level in single family homes.

I work directly with special education students with wide and varied disabilities.

My students are mainstream English speakers and ESL students. My ESL students grew up speaking Spanish as their first language.

I strive to make learning fun and interactive for my students. I try to incorporate engaging activities for the students which have been modified for my students' ability levels.

My Project

Having an Apple iPad will allow my students to use different apps to learn financial literacy. Using the iPad will allow my students to learn using interactive activities by learning about money and counting. I have many Autistic students and sometimes it is hard for them to focus in whole group. Money is a concept that can be hard to learn but using the Apple apps will give my student colorful visual images that will keep them learning without knowing it.

Closing the gap with financial literacy is very important.

My students will be able to learn Math skills which include money, spending and saving. My students will be able to use the Apple iPad in small group and individual work stations.
