My Students

My students' families have chosen to send their children to our school because we are a school of choice. The families at our school are middle-class families. We do not have wealthy parents who donate large amounts of money for the "extras", and we are not a Title I school. Therefore, we do not have extra funding coming in and we must perform using the small budget we are allotted. We are a high performing school. Our students work hard each day, we have devoted teachers, and their parents support their learning at home. It is a wonderful place to be a teacher.

My Project

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.
