Mrs. Barbera from Honolulu HI is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students pretend money and food so they are able to learn about financial responsibility and money.
My students are living in the heart of Waikiki, the center of tourism on Oahu, Hawaii. As a Title I school, with 65% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, the need for resources is very high due to school funding. My class is made up of 11 English Language Learners. Most of my students come from Micronesia or Pacific islands. This is usually their first experience in a school setting. Their language might be limited but they have a desire to learn. There are two special education students who are a big part of our class Ohana (family). They bring perseverance to our class.
Students have a strong sense of curiosity about the world, yet their curiosity is limited due to limited supplies.
Most of my students come to school with the desire to learn and achieve their goals. They want to explore the world around them and learn about culture and diversity. Hawaii is a melting pot of culture and traditions. From the moment they come to class, they are excited to learn.
Kindergarteners learn best by playing. They are more likely to retain informatin when they are engaged and having fun. This project will allow students to pretend to manage their own restaurant. They will need knowledge of financial literacy to manage and budget their restaurant. It will also allow them to handle their spending.
Students will learn about financial literacy by adding price and item to solve the total amount due during a pretend transaction.
This project allows students to act out addition and subtraction word problems and tie real-world situation to learning. Please help my students learn about financial literacy through play.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
