Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are an eager group of incredible individuals. Learning is exciting and thought provoking. I want to add a "financial" component to their life-long learning. Financial literacy will help them prepare for a successful future.
Many of my students live in government funded housing and face several challenging situations.
They attend a Title I School in Southern California. They all qualify for the free lunch program. All of my students are English Learners and need many support systems. Regardless of their individual circumstances and difficulties, they want to learn and apply what they've learned.
My students need copies of these books: The Kids' Money Book, Penny Saving Helper and Energy: Use Less--Save More, plus three e-readers with cases for students to learn how money affects all of our lives. These books and e-readers will help us understand how important it is to save and how it affects the way we live. We can add books on financial literacy to our e-readers and we can search the web on how to be responsible investors. Plus these resources will last for years.
The teaching of financial literacy to students is critical and creating the possibility of being responsible with our money begins with us: the adults who teach.
Learning how to save, what to do with savings and how to invest is the goal of this project. The opportunity to add to our classroom resources is priceless. The donations made towards this project will enable our students to prepare for a successful financial future.
