The majority of my students are from an urban area. They have chosen to attend our public charter school, to be a part of a school whose mission and vision are to provide a well-rounded STEM-based educational experience that fosters leaders, problem solvers, and critical thinkers. Our public charter school inspires, excites, and empowers young learners to embrace the wonders of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
Our school receives one-third of the funding traditional public schools in our area from the state.
This creates an economic hardship for our school. As a result, we have a challenging time acquiring materials to support our STEM-based curriculum for our students.
My kindergartners will be the first generation to experience our brand new STEM-based school and we're eager to begin this journey together.
I would love to have a Jumbo Double-Sided Magnetic Money set to make it easy to demonstrate money concepts during a whole group lesson. This is a great way to display the money for all to see and it is an interactive tool to teach Kindergartners money sense. My students would also enjoy learning about money by using fun-filled puzzles to practice counting coins and bills. This set comes with three levels which are perfect for my students who need extra practice as well as for my students who would like to be challenged. With the Self-Inking Coin Stamps, my class can explore money values in a fun way. The stamps show both heads and tails of each coin to help the students recognize coin values. The Pretend Money set, with two-sided coins and bills, are realistic and durable which is ideal for a Kindergarten class. Through instruction and play, the class will learn how to save money as well as how to spend it wisely. To go with our unit on Money, I would like to share books with my class about saving money, counting money and making smart budget choices.
By donating to our project, you will give our students the gift of learning about money in a fun and hands-on way, they will be given the opportunity to practice the value of coins and bills and a chance to challenge themselves by learning about adding coins and bills, making change and ways to save money.
Teaching children about Financial Literacy at an early age helps them learn the value of money and how to make good financial decisions. These materials will certainly enrich our Math Program and give our students a head start in learning about money.
