My Students

Our elementary students grow and learn at a Pre K-5 rural elementary school. Being in a rural community, we would like to bring opportunities that they may not be exposed to otherwise. They are wonderful children who are eager to expand their experiences and minds. We are partners in our journey through the years they spend with us.

Being a part of their journey, I have learned from my many years of teaching that students need to be connected to what they are learning.

My Project

My students learn best when they are immersed in what they are are learning. By reading and listening to various books like "Lemonade In Winter", "You Can't Buy a Dinosaur with a Dime", "The Penny Pot", "Alexander: Who Use To Be Rich Last Sunday", "Once Upon A Dime", and "A Dollar, A Penny, How Much and How Many," and games like Money Bags and Exact Change, my students will strengthen, reinforce, and gain a better understanding of this very important content. My third graders will get to use their growing knowledge of money in a way that is meaningful and purposeful to them while having fun with their peers.

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve and I learn," is a wonderful quote from Benjamin Franklin and sums up what "Making Cents of It All: Part 2" is about because my students will be immersed in their learning.
