I teach in a Title I school. Which means we have a high population of economically disadvantaged students. Our school receives 100% free lunch/breakfast for all students. Our school also has a high population of military families. Even though they may not have as much as other children this does not keep them from showing the amazing smart children they are!
You can teach a student a lesson for a day, but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.
This hold true to my group of kiddos. I teach an inquisitive group of kids who are always trying to learn more about the world around them. They love science, reading, math and using technology to learn with. My students turn everything into a lesson without being asked and are eager to share their findings. I am truly grateful to have such a great group of babies.
My students come in every day and want to purchase some type of extra goody from the cafeteria. Sometimes they will have different amounts of change and have a difficult time figuring out how much they have or how much they should receive back. My students need learning games, such as Monopoly, Allowance, Payday and the Game of Life to help them learn how to count money and how to manage their money for the items they want to purchase.
Building financial literacy now, will help our students save more in the future.
These games will also help with our social skills and team work.Some of my students have a hard time working with each other and through game play I hope to rectify this barrier.
