My Students

My students are 5th graders from low-income immigrant families. They are English Language Learners. All of our students qualify for the free meal program. We are a Title I school, as well as a Performance Improvement School. Many of my students are struggling to learn and understand English with no help from their parents. We have a lot of latchkey kids who go home every day alone and sit and watch TV. To ease the struggle, your donation will help me and motivate our English Learners into learning about the importance of financial literacy. Students learn more by practicing concepts in many ways such as team activities, games and real life connections.

My Project

Financial literacy is a skill all children should have starting at a young age. Teaching students about money will help them discover the relationships between earning, spending and saving. In doing this, children also begin to understand the value of money. By playing the requested board games, student will learn about financial literacy and work through real life decisions.

The games will help students make better life decisions and better financial decisions while playing with our friends.

With the games, students will be learning about budgeting, retirement, savings, investments, borrowing money, and insurance. The board games will be used every Fridays as an incentives. Students will take the board games home to play and share with the families. Students will then discuss family budgets with their family. I have requested magazines so we can read about current financial events in the classroom. This will help them take the knowledge they gain in our classroom and use it in their real lives. The magazines contain current financial news for the students to read and enhance their non-fiction reading skills. The laminating pouches will allow me to laminate flashcards about financial literacy so that they have durability and can be used many times.
