My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

I would like to teach my students about financial literacy during our economics unit. Every year, second grade students learn about producers and consumers, as well as buying and trading. The books I have requested will be a wonderful resource to read to my students about financial literacy and branch into the importance of saving money. At the conclusion of our economics study, I would like for my students to participate in a class store.

For two weeks, my students will be able to earn classroom bucks for completing homework and being kind, responsible citizens.

They will then be able to use those classroom bucks to purchase items from the class store. Items such as suckers, pixie sticks, and bubble gum are sure to be popular choices with eight year old children. If you help fund my project, my students are sure to have a fun time learning about the importance of finances!
