TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students hands-on materials to guide them in gaining an understanding of money and personal finance to hopefully last a lifetime!
Our school is located in Schoharie Valley, which is nestled between the Catskills and the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. A town of fewer than 3,000 people, it was once a busy summer resort town know for famous sulphuric and mineral baths. Now the once beautiful hotels and resort wait vacant. Our families often struggle to find employment and opportunity for their families.
Our school has less than 300 students in a K-12 building.
It is like a family. I have been teaching there for 30 years and I am now teaching 2nd to 3rd generations.
Each child in our school absolutely loves learning through a variety of fun and engaging lessons. Often these learning experiences are done K-12. This project will benefit grades K-1. The goal is to help them better understand finance. It is truly an incredible small school with so much community support.
The goal is to help beginning learners understand personal finance. It is important for young children to begin to understand the value of money. I use Class Dojo for classroom management. The students will make piggy banks and I will reward them with money equal to the amount of Dojo points they earned each month (average 50 cents a month). I will then ask the families to match the coins they earn from me. We will keep track of their earnings and then at the end of the year go to the local bank and open saving accounts with their money.
I will use the supplies to teach money through place value, learning the number 1-120 and for our classroom theme.
