My Students

Our school is full of energetic, rambunctious kids that are ready to learn! Unfortunately, many of them come from homes that live under the poverty line. This affects their home life, their school life, and their exposure to things that are different from their "norm." As their teacher, I want to give them everything they need to be successful not only in school, but socially, emotionally, and in their futures. Giving my kids' activities that engage them and make them want to learn is such a great way to keep their attention.

When kids enjoy the activities that they are doing, they are much more likely to invest their time and effort into it.

By creating high-quality materials that are built to last, my students have even more opportunity to learn and to grow in my classroom!

My Project

My second graders are very kinesthetic and visual learners - they learn best when they have materials in front of them to touch and use. Money is such an important concept that I want to make sure they have everything they need to truly grasp the concept. These materials will bring the real world into our classroom and will allow them to have fun while learning all about financial literacy!

Financial literacy is such an important skill and it's never too early to teach them the importance of money, how to count it, use it and save it!

Materials such as money Bingo, coin stamps, and even books about money will allow them to have fun while learning, but will also show them the importance of learning it.
