iPad Economics And The Real World

My students need an iPad to complete an online finance program. This program will help them to learn about financing while improving their basic math skills.

My Students

Ching, Ching, Ching, Ca Ching! In my class you will find an excited group of fourth graders ready to learn about finance and the economy. We work from the first bell to the last bell, making learning authentic and fun. We need your help to make our technology dreams come to life!

My students are a group of 22 fourth graders with various learning abilities.

I have some students who are ESE, some students who are ESOL, and some students who are general education students. All of my students range from low performing students to high performing students (based on standardized testing). A great majority of my students are Free/Reduced lunch, which makes my school a Title I School. This, however, does not stop our learning. My students come to school everyday, with their thinking caps on ready to venture off into new territories of learning. Although resources are hard to come by, excuses in my classroom are not an option. We usually can make do with what we have. I have high expectations for my students, and with a little pushing and teeth pulling, I am usually able to get them to rise and meet my expectations. My students are my kids, and I treat them as such. I show them respect and a sense of care, and in return they show me how hard they can work. We will win!

My Project

The iPad will help my students prepare to be great with finances. Using many apps on the iPad, students will count and sort money, and balance a classroom economy checkbook. They will also work through financial modules on saving, debits and credits, and future financial planning. Students will also prepare for their career by conducting research on the career of their choice learning pathways to get there, salaries, and more. This project will help students to truly understand what it takes to be financially savvy in today's economy.

Helping this project will give my students an opportunity that they wouldn't normally have.

Students will have the opportunity to use technology to research career choices and to complete modules that will help them to become better math students and financially savvy. Students will better understand place value and budgeting. Students will take something that they learned in the classroom and apply it to a real world situation. This will make learning for authentic for all students.
