My Students

My students have great imaginations and enjoyed playing different games with classmates in and outside of class time.

Kindergartners are so special..they remind me of how simple the world can be because they are still innocent and genuine.

They came from working class families and were eager to learn at school. Hands on learning created meaningful experiences for these students. When introducing new hands on learning materials and technology to them, they viewed those items as precious items they have yearned to experience. They have great imaginations and enjoyed playing different games with classmates in and outside of class time.

My Project

I believe a strong foundation in the development of mathematical skills begins with counting and understanding and identifying numbers, knowing how to add and subtract. This is why I want to make my math block as interactive as possible so students can enjoy learning.

Financial literacy and number sense go together and number sense is huge focus in kindergarten.

Number sense essentially refers to a student’s fluidity and flexibility with numbers. Financial literacy refers to the set of skills and knowledge that allows an individual to make informed and effective decisions with all of their financial resources.

The reusable write wipe pockets, magnetic, alphabet stix and calendar accents I am requesting will help teach financial literacy more effectively and better. It will allow me to make all lessons more interactive. My kindergartners can use the reusable write wipe pockets to write and draw through our common core number sense standards. The magnetic, alphabet stix and calendar accents will help me make our whiteboard and calendar time or engaging.

Thank you for donating to this project and helping my second grade students to be successful in learning.
