My Students

My goal is to make my classroom fun and engaging. I want my students to love coming to school and to be active learners!

I have 24 kindergarten and transitional kindergarten students.

They come to school each day with big smiles on their faces and are ready to learn. I teach in a low income school with a high number of English language learners. My school is innovative and offers a wide variety of after school clubs to give opportunities to students that many probably wouldn't have otherwise.

My Project

Financial literacy is an important life skill that begins in kindergarten! My students are learning foundational skills such as counting by ones, fives, and tens, beginning addition and subtraction, comparing numbers, the value of coins, understanding greater/less than, and how to count money.

Kindergartners learn best through play and by using engaging, hands-on materials.

The giant dominoes, giant dice, ten frames, and math skills write and wipe boards will be used to work on number sense, which lays the foundation for financial literacy. I will use the coin stamps and stamp pads to begin teaching coin values and have students stamp coins and write their value. They will also be able to use the write and wipe pockets as a recording sheet for money worksheets. The magnetic builders will be used for number sense as well. Students will create a picture and count and write the number of shapes used for each picture. Number writing, counting ten frames, and one-to-one correspondence are all essential skills that lead to financial literacy.

Using these hands-on centers and manipulatives will make learning math and financial literacy skills fun and exciting for my students.

Financial literacy is an important skill to introduce to young students. Practicing number sense in a fun and hands-on way will build a solid foundation for these students.
