The students that I am so fortunate to work with are amazing third graders who all come from our poverty-stricken community.
They need as much motivation as they can get.
Many of my students experience so much trauma that they do not like coming to school.
They come from families that do not have the resources or the ability to help them academically or financially. We want to create a positive atmosphere for them where we can celebrate their successes.
Many of them have learning disabilities and struggle with language acquisition, speech impairments and/or emotional disabilities. Their life experiences have left them reading way below grade level, struggling to express themselves, often resorting to violent outbursts and lacking the basics that many take for granted.
My students need to learn about the economy and communities to help them understand financial literacy better. Help me put these important economics concepts right at children’s fingertips—with a ready-to-use learning center that sets up in a flash! Simply set out the easy-to-follow, illustrated instruction chart & all the hands-on materials children need to complete the activity…then students work at their own pace to discover fascinating facts about the economy! These centers comes will help my students learn about important financial literacy concepts. With these learning tools we are sure to enjoy learning social studies and economy in a way in which the students will have fun.
