"The more that you read, the more things you know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go." - Dr. Seuss
My students are a group of nine and ten year old students who are excited about learning new things and facing new challenges.
Although we are a small district we have a wonderful school made up of students, parents, teachers, and administrators who believe in working together to increase student achievement. We are part of a small district in Arkansas, and 75% of our students qualify for free or reduced meals.
My students need a classroom set of 20 "Worth" books, an iPad mini, a protective case, and magnetic coins and bills. Using the information found on the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis website, I found a list of many high quality lessons that are meant to accompany books. Using this list, I selected "Worth" to do a class book study which will target Economic, Literacy, and Math standards. Some of the topics addressed in the Worth book are: saving, banking, profit, risk, and reward. This book study will also allow us to spend time on many standards, including number lines. Number lines have been a difficult concept for some of my students this year and I believe this book will allow each of my students to gain meaningful experiences that can strengthen their current skills. Additionally, using the iPad mini, I predict that my students will be able to work together to strengthen their economic skills through educational apps as well as research.
Donating to this project can help me tighten the gaps that some students face.
Funding this project will allow my students to be more actively engaged in Economic lessons. Additionally, my students' lives will be changed for the better by their ability to read, research, and participate in lessons that will build better decision making skills in the real world!
