Mrs. Hodge from Micro NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a money math program made for limited to non-readers to help them with real life money skills.
What can I say about my students? They are some of the best kids aroun. They are learning and growing in a very small rural community at the school I attended when I was their age. Being able to come back to the school I attended to help young children in my hometown has been very rewarding. They are learning a variety of different skills in addition to their academics. They learn daily living and independent skills to help them become more independent as they grow into adulthood.
These students deserve the world, and if I can give it to them, I will.
Despite any challenges they face, they work hard and always put forth 100% effort. As a teacher, I could not ask for a better and more deserving group of young adults to work with.
We were so very thankful that we received part one of this donated by Charles Schwab Foundation! We received many hands on manipulatives to help with our classroom building money skills. Now we want to put those manipulatives to work. Our students are working on skills that will help them one day be successful adults.
These are skills that will not only last a school year, they will last my students a life time.
One of the main skills a person needs in life is how to handle money. The PCI money math program that we are requesting are made especially for children with limited to no reading abilities. This will take one of the many stresses off the students in our room. With these programs they can focus on the real life skills of opening checking accounts, balancing a budget, shopping skills, using the ATM and so much more. No reading needed!
The touch money kit shows children how to count money in a hands on approach. Once a student masters counting by 5's, they are able to count any amount of change. Each of the coins have touch dots that the students memorize and they touch as they count. This is a skill that they can carry over into the real world when purchasing an item. The menu math program teaches the students how to use money when ordering food.
These are skills that we sometimes take for granted. With part 2 of Money Money Moneyyyy, we can take all the hands on activities and work with these programs to build a strong foundation of financial literacy.
