My students need manipulatives, books and materials that will help them develop an understanding of money.
I teach in an inner city public school which houses a program for Autistic Impaired Learners. We have a diverse population of students with various Autism Spectrum disorders. My classroom consists of 20 children. All my students are the most kind and hard working you will ever meet. Watching how all students accept one another for their unique and beautiful differences is truly amazing. They make me proud to be their teacher and come in everyday to help them grow socially and academically.
According to our State Frameworks, by the end of first grade students will be able to, "Identify the values of all U.S. coins and know their comparative values (e.g., a dime is of greater value than a nickel) Find equivalent values (e.g., a nickel is equivalent to five pennies). Use appropriate notation (e.g., 69¢). Use the values of coins in the solutions of problems (up to 100¢)."
My students need materials that will help them master these standards so that they will be ready for second grade.
Colorful, informative books are a wonderful way to capture young students' attention and present the necessary content. "Bunny Money", "A Dollar, a Penny, How Much and How Many?", "The Magic Money Box" and "Money" (a 7 book set) do just that. Using high interest manipulatives like Money Equivalency Puzzles, Money Hands-On Kit, Count It Up! Money Rods and Counting Money Puzzles will address those learners who do best by doing (which is basically all of my students) and be fun at the same time. I'm also asking for the book "Do I Need It? or Do I Want It? Making Budget Choices" to introduce my students to sound financial choices.
All of these materials will be a welcome addition to our classroom and make mastering our established standards so much easier for my students.
