Some of my students come from difficult family lives, but they don't let that stop them. We have built a community in our classroom that allows each student to be comfortable with who they are. Even though we are a diverse school, everyone feels included.
About 90% of the students are receiving free or reduced-price lunch.
Most students are living with a single parent or both parents work full time, although many parents are eager to help in any way they can.
I am always looking for ways to make learning fun for my students. I love letting them explore and learn new concepts as they play. In kindergarten, we teach basic money concepts.
What better way to teach money than let them pretend to use money!
The Osmo pizza game will give my students practice using money to purchase items and also making change. This game will reinforce what they are learning about money during our lessons. The more opportunities students have to practice a concept, the greater chance they have for remembering the information. That is why this game will be a great addition to our classroom.
The board game will be used to help them remember the names and values of each coin. The books will be used to introduce money to the students.
The charging stations will be used to charge our iPads that we use for our Osmo games.
