My classroom is not defined by the four walls that surround us. Our learning goes well beyond those walls. We are inventors, researchers, creators, collaborators, philanthropists, technophiles, and scholars. My students are always reaching for more ways to learn.
My business and technology classes have students from various grade levels, socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, and academic capabilities.
These students come together in such an amazing way to create real results. They support each other unconditionally and really have a desire to change the world around them.
I am always looking for fun and exciting ways for my students to hone their skills in financial literacy. In my Personal Finance classes, I would love to have periodic Game Day Competitions to reward students for their hard work throughout our class. We need board games like Monopoly, Ticket to Ride, and the Game of Life. These games will give an opportunity for students to unplug and engage with each other while playing board games that reinforce various financial literacy skills like money management, long-term planning, budgeting, and other key life skills. The board games I've selected will help my students do just that!
Allowing my students to have fun "unplugged" days will give them an opportunity to socialize and unwind while learning the importance of financial literacy.
