Don't you wish someone had taught you the value of money from a very young age? Who knows, maybe you would be a billionaire by now if someone taught you how to count and save your money. Then again, maybe you are a billionaire and today you will be helping me teach my kindergarteners all about money.
I have 23 extremely smart kindergarteners.
I have been teaching them about time and money because they are interested and they are eager to learn. My students are predominantly Latino. They come from various countries such as Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador. They love to sing, dance, recite nursery rhymes, read and write. The latest dance we have been practicing is the Elmo Slide. We play it once per week as our morning exercise. Another one of our favorite activities is silent art. This is a 20 minute period (once per week) where they are not allowed to speak but are listening to classical music and are creating masterpieces with water colors. We currently have a gallery outside our classroom. Our classroom is one where mutual respect and love predominate in the classroom.
My students are small and need as many visual aids and manipulatives as I can get my hands on in order to make instruction comprehensible to them. I am requesting bags of plastic coins and dollar bills in order to teach identifying, counting, using and budgeting money.
I ask that you please fund my project because my students learn best though play.
If I have these coins we can play store, play bank, play we exchange coins for good behavior and all while learning about how money works and how to count it. My students already know how to count by 5s and by 10s to 150. All we need is a few nickels and dimes to make this relevant to real life.Read More
