I am a first year teacher and I work at a Title I school in a low socioeconomic area, and 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. For some of our kids, these are the only two meals they have in a day.
Although my kids face many challenges, they are always eager to learn.
We are three miles away from Ft. Bliss, so we have many military families in our school as well. Our school is located in a border city, and many of my students moved here from Mexico and are English language learners. I'm always looking for innovative ways to teach my kids and encourage them to love school and learning.
With these requested Chromebook laptops, I will teach Financial Literacy to my students. Students will complete various online age appropriate interactive assignments.
These Chromebooks will be utilized by my 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.
The Scholastic site has amazing, age appropriate financial literacy lessons and games for students to engage in and learn about the value of money through literacy. The four Chromebooks will allow students to use the site in our class to learn about financial literacy.
