My Students

Our school saying is, "Better today than yesterday! Better tomorrow than today!" I want to make their tomorrow better!

My class consists of a diverse group of learners.

My class has 26 second grade students of varying abilities. The socio-economic background of our students is reflected by our 97% free and reduced-price lunch rate.

I teach in an urban inner city school rich with diversity. I teach at a NAESP school. Most of my students need additional learning materials to meet grade level expectations. Please help me to make tomorrow better for them!

My Project

My students really enjoy learning about money and becoming financially responsible. They also enjoy learning their math facts and perfecting their numeracy skills. This project is part 3 of our "Money Matters" projects for this school year.

Having portable lap desks and hands-on-high-interest games and resources available will help to excite my learners in the classroom!

Being able to use lap desks and hands on learning materials will help to excite me learners. They will be learning while being comfortable and having FUN! The more they play the more they'll learn!

My students would really enjoy using Learning Resources Minute Math Electronic Flash Cards. These are self correcting flash cards that really help with mastering math facts. We will need the AAA and AA Batteries to run our electronic flash cards. We also need the batteries to run games from our Money Matters second project. We will use the Smarty Pants Prob,me Solving Cards to use in math centers to help strengthen our money skills, numeracy skills, and problem solving skills.

My students need to master counting money and exchanging money up to $1.99 in second grade. The more exposure I give them to real-life math skills the more they will learn about math in the real world. My students will really benefit from all of these resources in this project to help them become fiscally responsible and money wise!
