Stocking the Student Store

My students need items such as LEGO minifigures, plushies, and squishy toys to add to the student store to spend their classroom bucks while learning about financial literacy.

My Students

There are many great things going on at our school. Our school is changing the distinguish practice by becoming a STEAM school. Sixth-grade students will be participating in band class and will be able to study one instrument for the school year.

As a teacher of students who come from situations that are beyond their control, I push them to persevere and be the best that they can be despite circumstances.

Some of my students are either homeless or live in motels or a crowded room. Some of my students are responsible for caring for their younger siblings as their parents work long hours. Regardless of the situation, they come to school and learn. Living close to a popular tourist attraction, many of my students and their families are unable to go because they can’t afford it. Our school is a Title I school where the majority of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

My Project

For this project, I am asking for items such as LEGO mini-figurines, plushies, and squishy toys to add to the classroom student store. Currently, my students are participating in the classroom economy. Students are able to earn money through classroom jobs and doing their homework. They also pay fines and monthly desk rental fee. To have buy-in and have students want to participate, I have a student store where they can buy goodies. In order for that to happen, I need to have it stocked with goodies. Currently, there isn't much in the student store.

Learning financial literacy skill is an important life skill that everyone should possess.

This is a skill that is rarely taught and by teaching my students financial skills, I know I will set them up for success.
