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 students learn best when they are immersed in what they are are learning. One of the many ways I use to help my students learn better is through game play. They get to use their knowledge of money in a way that is meaningful and purposeful to them while having fun. They would use Osmo Pizza Co. and the Buy It board game to practice and strengthen their understanding of making change, saving, and spending with their classmates.
"Learning never exhausts the mind," a quote attributed to Leonardo da Vinci and my students are very enthusiastic when it comes to new and different ways to learn.
