My students come from all over the district. We are a public school, where parents put their child on the waitlist at four years old to go through the school's lottery. We are a school of choice. We are a high performing school, where parent participation is strongly encouraged. Parent support is key to my students' success. We do not receive federal funding. We have to fundraise for anything extra. Common Core Standards are implemented daily, with a lack of materials. It would be great to get more materials.
I will teach Financial Literacy to my students. Students will complete various online age appropriate interactive assignments.
The Chromebook will be utilized for students to engage in online activities and games to reinforce the financial literacy concepts taught in class.
Having access to the internet and a Chromebook in our classroom will help me to keep my lessons current, lets me teach beyond the classroom walls, and allows me to engage students using a format that students enjoy. Teaching financial responsibility and literacy helps students at a young age understand the value of money and the economy.
Scholastic has amazing, age appropriate financial literacy lessons and games for students to engage in and learn about the value of money through literacy. The Chromebook will allow students to use the site in our class to learn about financial literacy.
