My Students

I work in a small, fully inclusive charter school, where almost seventy percent of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch. I work with students who are labeled in many ways: ELL, LD, ID, BIP, IEP, SLP, apraxic, autistic, ADD, ADHD, ODD, and the list goes on. I'm working to help students remove their labels and find their feet, as well as their voices.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds, but one thing they have in common is their thirst for creative learning opportunities.

My Project

My students need real life financial literacy resources to hone, review, and apply their new found "cents".

Math magazines would offer financial literacy topics to explore independently or in small groups.

These games would allow my 3rd graders to play with math concepts without realizing they were learning. Education is moving towards making learning more fun. Board game stations that focus on money, and place value offer a fun way to review financial building blocks. Financial literacy at an early age is essential. It's a life skill that is often overlooked. These skills enable students to be forward thinking and future-planning.
