My Students

Our school's fundamental approach to education is to foster character development through a small school environment with firm discipline and high levels of parent involvement. Our program gives children from diverse cultural backgrounds an opportunity to succeed at a high level, with enriching coursework and foreign language education from kindergarten through eighth grade.

Fourth grade is an exciting year for students and teachers because it is in fourth grade that children begin assignments requiring long-range planning, collaborating on group assignments, using research tools, and developing a real writing style.

Children in my classroom test their predictions as they study complex systems, and expand their study of social studies beyond the knowledge of our local community and into the realms of Florida history and government.

The atmosphere in my classroom is light and playful, to better support my bright, energetic fourth graders in reaching their learning goals. We enjoy releasing butterflies, dancing together, and growing together.

My Project

My students need these board games and books to help them understand how to use money to its best effect. I am applying to receive books that sound interesting and engaging, and are age appropriate. These will serve as a valuable introduction to economic concepts at a critical stage in my students' development. Also, the board games will be a fun way for them to put their financial understanding to the test in real-world scenarios, where they can learn the consequences of financial decisions first-hand.

These resources would also help us meet our state's Social Studies Standards for Financial Literacy, in teaching students about earning income, buying goods and services, saving, using credit, financial investing, and protecting and insuring.
