My Students

“Children learn as they play. Most importantly in play, children learn how to learn.” -Fred Donaldson.

My students come to school every day eager to explore their environment through hands-on learning.

I teach an Early Childhood Special Education class consisting of five students who are 4 to 6 years old. My students come from diverse backgrounds and have varied needs. Our school consists of 700+ students with more than 40% receiving free or reduced-price school lunch. We are located in Louisiana, nestled on the northshore of New Orleans.

My Project

My students will shop in a mock grocery story incorporating early learning math games and financial literacy activities. These materials in a dramatic play center allow students to learn about money and participate in imaginative play while shopping for food items. These materials will allow my students to start comprehending how adults utilize money in everyday life.

Help me give my students mock grocery supplies that will foster creativity and spark their imagination during imaginative play.

Young minds need novel and engaging ways to learn financial literacy and the pretend food items in the mock grocery combined with early math games will make that possible. By donating to our project, you will help give my students the opportunity to explore early math concepts such as counting which will lay the foundation for financial literacy.
