My Students

The students in my classroom come from a neighborhood that has been struggling socioeconomically for a while. A few of my students have opportunities available to them outside of school while others only have opportunities and experiences that come from inside of the school walls. My classroom is a safe space for all students and I strive every day to make them feel loved and valued.

My students have a love for learning and work hard every day to change their own story as well as the history of their community!

My Project

My students need books, coins stamps, calculators, and play grocery sets to learn about financial literacy. I want to teach my students the skills they need to develop a strong foundation for lifelong financial competence. I created this project because I want to help my students discover the relationships of earning to spending and saving. I strongly believe that in doing this, my students will begin to understand the value of money.

The books I requested will give my students the opportunity to read and learn about saving money, borrowing money, spending money, among other important things.

The grocery set, the coins stamps and the toy register will give my students the opportunity to set up a dramatic play center where the students can take turns being the customers and the store clerks. What better way to teach my students about financial literacy than through dramatic play!
