My students come from a variety of different backgrounds and ethnicities. Our school is a Title One school with 43% free and reduced lunch.
In our classroom, we are all unique and we celebrate our differences; for it is our differences that give us our super powers.
My students set goals for themselves and they achieve them. They are smart, kind, and caring. They work hard as individuals and come together as a team. They show respect for each other. They are all Super Heroes.
In second grade students learn how to count coins, solve word problems involving money, and begin to learn about the economy. There is no better way to learn than using hands on activities such as Money Board games, playing cards, and folder games.
Having these hands-on resources paired with books about needs and wants, and saving and spending will help my class be successful with money.
Our second grade Social Studies standards align perfectly with this project. Students begin learning about saving and spending and the difference between needs and wants. These resources will help these lessons come alive to my students and create a deeper understanding of concepts. My students will be able to learn the value of coins, what they look like, and be more efficient at adding money and making change which are important life skills.
