Mrs. Castaneda from Avondale AZ is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

It’S Time for Money!

Help me give my students manipulatives to use with counting money and telling time. They will be able to use hands on practice to meet their kinethestic and visual learning styles.

My Students

Hi! I teach in a Special Education Life Skills Classroom for students in 9th-12th grade. My students have mild to moderate intellectual disabilities. We work towards building basic academic skills in reading, writing, and math. We also work to improve Adult Survival Skills such as working with time, money, and calendar. In addition, we have a classroom kitchen and laundry room to work on Daily Living Skills. Needless to say; We are BUSY!

My students are rock stars.

They typically come from low income families, hardships, and struggles. They don't let this interfere with their learning or quality of life. They are energetic, happy, and ready to learn! What more could a teacher ask for!?

My Project

We practice money counting and telling time in our Adult Survival Life Skills Class. We do this through station rotations, whole group, small group, and one on one. These hands on manipulatives will help my students learn and practice these skills in a much clearer way. It’s not easy using paper plate clocks and black and white dollar bills, but we sure do try to make it work! With this project, students will be able to have a variety of time and money activities that are hands on and that apply to the real world. It will surely make it a little easier to practice these everyday life skills.
