My Students

First graders are like sponges and absorb everything you teach them. I love how energetic they are when you present new activities to them. Their eyes light up and their smile gets bigger and bigger, and you know you've made a connection.

Our school is located in the heart of rural Appalachia in South Eastern Kentucky.

Many students are in the backpack food program and 100% of our students receive free lunch. Being from a low socioeconomic background and area doesn't stop them from learning, it just takes place a little differently. Working in small groups allows students to work on tasks on their own individual level and be successful. I have future teachers, nurses, doctors, and leaders in my classroom and I want to show them they can do anything!

My Project

Money is one of those topics that can be a little tricky at this age, but having these resources on hand will help to set a good foundation from the beginning. Students will be able to participate in various activities to aid in their learning.

These resources will help my first grade students learn about coins and bills and their value, and be able to count and add money correctly.

When introduced, the large magnetic coins and bills will be great visuals they all can see on the front board. They can also use the flashcards in centers or with a partner to increase their knowledge of this skill. Pencil pouches will allow the students to keep their money in one spot during the time we are working with it. The magnetic pouches will be great for me to keep the larger pieces in and have easy access to when I am using the board for another topic.
