My Students

I teach fourth grade at a neighborhood elementary school in Florida. My class is composed of 23 students from diverse backgrounds with various learning needs and challenges. They represent over five countries and three different languages. My students are eager learners. Every morning I have half my students coming in early to receive extra help with their homework or concepts they need help, with big smiles on their faces ready to learn. They are motivated by hands-on, engaging activities. They take pride in their work and are always striving for more knowledge.

We are a Title I school, which means that a high population of students receives free or reduced-price lunch.

My Project

Children today need to become financially literate. Learning how to manage their money and maintaining a good credit score is important for their future success in our society.

Technology (iPads) are a great way for students to grasp the concept of financial literacy.

Through app games, students will learn how to save and invest. They will also learn the difference between wants and needs.

The free apps my students will be using are Jurassic City Builder where students create their own city and have to be able to manage the finance of their city. Money Mammals Needs vs Wants, this will teach students the difference between wanting something versus needing something. Show Me the Money, this app will help students understand why saving is important.

These games will allow the students to understand financial literacy in a fun way and at their level of understanding.
