Mrs. Snow from Pell City AL is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Teaching Financial Literacy & Life Skills through Art!

My Students

My classroom of special learners love hands-on learning.

My students are exceptional people, eager to love and learn.

We focus on ability, not disabilities. All students can learn regardless of challenges they may face.

The most important skills I can teach my kids are life skills. We want our kids to grow up to be as independent as possible. By training students in our school based enterprise, they gain valuable insight into the world of financial literacy and money management!

My Project

Our special education students will be working on art projects in our school based workshop. Students will be crafting art projects and will hold an art sale in our school at our annual Night of the Arts. Students will be painting canvas, wooden cut outs and making mosaics with buttons. All of these items will be sold and students will manage the sales process as a lesson in money management and financial literacy.

Students will assist with tracking inventory, will help price items, will help with promoting and marketing the sale and will assist in the money exchanging process.

They will also be able to track profits and help decide as a class on how to spend it.

It is crucial to teach our students these vital life skills through a hands on process, as this is how they learn best. Through this project students will be able to become more confident in their financial literacy skills in a fun and exciting way.
