My Students

Play is one of the most successful ways for students to learn. Through meaningful, deliberately designed activities, students can access the curriculum in relevant ways. With games and dramatic play, students have fun but also learn crucial academic skills.

I work in a large urban elementary school serving grades K-5 in the Midwest.

100% of students within the school receive free breakfast and lunch based upon the low socioeconomic status of the surrounding community. These students deserve access to the best opportunities and supplies, just like those provided to the more affluent surrounding areas. Engaging lessons and hands-on experiences are exactly what the children of this community need.

My Project

These resources will provide students will fun ways to learn about money. This includes how to count money, what coins look like, and how to use money wisely. Through dramatic play with fake money and a cash register, students will have fun while learning. This will make the learning more relevant and lasting. Puzzles and stamps will help students learn how to recognize, count, and add money in all its forms. The large storage tub will allow for easy storage and accessibility for teachers and students.

As a school serving a high poverty community, financial literacy is important for students and their families.

Students need to understand how to wisely spend and save money. Through the "Savings and Spending" games and activities pack, students will get to practice making shopping lists based on their wants and needs and how to save for what they really need. This will help students really internalize the values.
