My Students

My school is located in North Philadelphia, in a high poverty neighborhood. My students range from 8 to 10 years old, and are in grades 3rd to 5th. They are also diagnosed with Autism.

They are very sweet, loving students, but require a lot of individualization in order to learn.

This requires a lot of materials for differentiation. The class is a mixture of verbal and nonverbal students, which requires additional resources and materials. Some students require a 1 on 1 assistant for daily activities.

My Project

Financial literacy is an important life skill needed for all students. This includes my students who are autistic and need to be able to count money in order to gain some independence as they get older.

My students are great, diverse learners!

They are learning about counting money but because they are all on different levels a wide array of manipulatives are needed. I have students still identifying coins and other students who are counting handfuls of change. This project is asking for additional money activities that will help enrich my students learning while keeping them engaged in their learning.
