I teach an awesome and eager group of kindergarten students in an inner-city school where 100% of students receive free school lunch. Most of my students come from a family background where they lack academic and financial support to enrich their academic studies. The majority of these students come from families where parents are too busy working and lack the language or education to help them with their schoolwork. Therefore, the role of the teacher is extremely vital to their learning.
Despite these setbacks, my students are motivated learners who rely heavily on teachers and school support to help them become successful in life.
Our school motto is to be respectful, responsible, and scholarly. In order to help them achieve these goals, I must provide them with the best classroom environment, full of the proper supplies and guidance.
It is never too early to learn about financial literacy! And kindergarten is the perfect time and place to introduce this very important subject to my students! Some of my students are barely learning how to read and count numbers which are the basic foundational skills to becoming financially literate. Therefore it is very important that I make sure they become solid in grasping these concepts.
The materials I am requesting will be an engaging and fun way to help assist my students learn these math basics!
The math activity calendar board will help my students build a solid foundation for the number system. It will also teach my students to problem solve and how to estimate through numbers.
Financial literacy is a big part of our future success. It will never be too early to start teaching my students how to achieve financial literacy!
