My Students

My classroom of 34 students is very unique. I have students with intellectual and developmental delays, emotional and social issues, and the day-to-day anxiety of being a middle school student. My students are eager to learn and have many different learning styles.

For these students, having hands on projects and learning about financial literacy can help them prepare for their future.

By having financial literacy books, games, and project lessons, the students can increase their knowledge in the importance of making good financial choices.

My Project

Living from paycheck to paycheck is daunting. Day to day living expenses can be a struggle. My middle school students need to learn and understand the importance of financial literacy.

Having a good understanding of financial responsibility will help these students for the rest of their lives.

My students need books that contain information about aspects of financial literacy written at their instructional reading level. The Money Bundle of books introduce the students to aspects of budgeting, investing, saving, and credit/debit cards. The Allowance Game is a fun activity that will engage the students background knowledge of money, chores, and responsibilities. Finally a great adaptive activity, the money puzzles will help students determine coin and bill combinations that can be used to purchase items.
