My students need engaging hands on activities to gain financial literacy! Manipulatives, economy hands on activities and money puzzles will provide the tools needed for my students to learn a wide range of money topics.
I am lucky enough to spend every school day helping children with learning disabilities achieve their full potential. They are full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.
I teach special education at a Title I school in San Bernardino, where over 80% percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.
In addition to learning with Autism, dyslexia, and a range of processing deficits many of my students receive backpack food on the weekends and we utilize a school closet of gently used clothes. Despite so many hardships and learning disabilities, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.
Financial literacy is the knowledge and skills everyone needs to make effective and informed money decisions. I want to expose my students to this very important topic through fun, hands-on activities.
Financial literacy is such an important set of skills and these manipulatives and puzzles will provide my students with much needed practice in developing healthy money habits.
Our class will use these puzzles, manipulatives and games to learn about saving, balancing a checkbook, and creating a budget. The magnets will provide the tools to teach mini-money lessons and the power pen and cards will allow students to practice those skills independently.
