My Students

My third-grade students live in a rural community where the entire elementary population receives free lunch. Our school consists of self-contained, open classrooms. The students come from diverse backgrounds with a strong desire to learn and be challenged in new and exciting ways! They seize opportunities and are excited by new perspectives and additions to our classroom.

Classroom instruction includes highly engaging, hands-on activities to keep students focused and motivated.

My students are in need of opportunities to build a strong educational foundation that will benefit them their entire lives.

My Project

Students will be able to use these Kindle Fires to access all kinds of apps, including apps that can build financial literacy skills.

Technology runs our world these days, so using technology to gain financial literacy is a must!

Due to our low-income area, my students often do not even have the background knowledge to build on when it comes to money and what it really means.

They also don't have the technology to access the best resources to help them build these skills.

Providing my classroom with Kindles can help with both of these things. The students in my class will be able to use the technology to gain more skills with financial literacy!
