My Students

I am a teacher of 6th-8th grade students. All of my students are diverse learners. They have special needs ranging from mild learning disabilities to social/emotional difficulties. I teach math, science, and writing. My kids are from a working class, low-income area. We are a very family-oriented school and have great family involvement.

My kids benefit greatly from the enrichment that extra materials provide in the classroom.

We can grow in our learning if we just have the materials that we need.

My Project

For this project I am requesting board games as well as a few books for my classroom to teach students about financial literacy. Games like the Allowance Game as well as Payday and Monopoly teach children the very basic of dealing with money. If we teach students how to be money aware at a young age then they may not learn hard lessons later.

Students often learn more from hands-on activities as well as from their peers.

Playing board games allows for both to happen at the same time. The Money Book set will compliment these lessons very nicely. Teaching children financial literacy now will help them become financially literate adults.
