My students need money manipulatives and money-related games to begin exploring basic money concepts.
"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." - Benjamin Franklin
My students are learning sponges!
They are eager to "absorb" any information that I present to them. They are constantly asking why questions, and, as their teacher, I believe in motivating their higher-order thinking by answering their questions and motivating them to continue to be curious learners within their surroundings. If you were to walk the hallway at my school site, you'd see that every teacher strives to make their lessons engaging, enjoyable, inspiring, and interactive.
Did you know that researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison report that by the age of three, many children are able to grasp economic ideas such as value and exchange? By the age of seven, a child’s view of finances and spending are already in place.
When you teach children about money by incorporating it into play times, you provide opportunities for them to practice counting, to use money vocabulary and to work with the terms, more than and fewer than.
Learning about money also helps students understand other mathematical concepts such as fractions and decimals in later grades.
My students are always exploring the world around them, including through play in our classroom. The items I am requesting will enable them to be exposed to the concept of money in a grade-level format that is appropriate for them. For example, the plastic coins and paper money can help teach them about money recognition and they can even extend their pattern-making skills by incorporating the materials. The money puzzles will enable my students to put together fun-filled puzzles as they practice matching coins to their correct money value—and master basic money concepts piece by piece! Lastly, with the help of an adult during center time, my students will have the ability to play games to make learning fun and engaging! Will you help show my students the money?
