My Students

I have the privilege of teaching amazing second grade students. My students come from diverse backgrounds and my classes include students learning English as a second language, on level students, students who require extra support, as well as gifted learners who require enrichment. My students are extremely fortunate to have a wonderful math, science, social studies, and English language arts curriculum, but many of them want more!

My students in second grade have diverse backgrounds and have unique learning needs and every day I challenge myself and my students to be the best they can be.

My Project

My goal with this project is to teach my students an introduction into financial literacy. My students need the Spend and Save activities kit to help them understand how you can earn, spend, and save money. These activities provide real world examples to help students understand financial literacy.

In addition to the Spend and Save Activities, I am requesting write on/wipe off pockets and a pencil pouch for my students to make sure they can get the most out of the Spend and Save Activities without damaging them.

My students switch classes so the pencil pouches are necessary to make sure that each student has a place to keep their dry erase materials as well as their pencils so they have everything needed for the Spend and Save Activities. The Write and Wipe materials will be used to ensure that students can use the financial literacy materials again and again without being damaged.
