My Students

My third graders are enthusiastic learners! They are inquisitive, bright, caring, compassionate, and wonderful. Our small, rural school is located near the southern coast of Oregon. We work hard to collaborate, create, and communicate throughout our day.

We pride ourselves on lifting each other up, as we strive toward a common goal of developing students who are critical thinkers, innovators, and role models.

We have a long way to go toward achieving this goal; however, with your help, I know we can make it. In our class, we live by the motto, "The good you do, will come back to you!"

My Project

Who doesn't love a good food truck? It seems like these mobile culinary cruisers are popping up on every street corner. To help my third graders learn more about financial literacy, while also developing hands-on math skills, I would like to challenge them to create their own food trucks!

Students in our classroom will design and create a business model for their own food truck!

To stay organized they will need the colored pocket folders and polyvinyl pockets for their notes, hand outs, graphs, and research materials. In addition, the chart paper, graph paper, and card stock will be used to create scale models of their food trucks. Students will be able to practice area and perimeter math skills while developing their projects. In addition, the scented markers and printed duct tape will allow students to creatively decorate their paper creations, ensuring their visions come to life!

To further bring forth the financial literacy skills, we will invite local food trucks to our campus and allow students to tour the vehicles, take measurements using the retractable tape measures we requested, and ask the food truck owners questions regarding their business. Students will learn first-hand what it takes to start up a small business and keep it going. It is our hope this project will not only leave a long and lasting impression on our students​ but also become part of a tradition at our school!
