My Students

I am the lucky teacher of 23 amazing, smart, fun, energetic, artistic, creative, and amusing third graders. We live in a small, rural community. Our school has a diverse culture. Included in our boundary is a Native American reservation from which a good part of our student body comes. Our students all qualify for free breakfast and lunch. Even though our cultures and economic situations are varied, our school is a welcoming place of learning, working together, and providing the best for our children.

My Project

Class store is one of my students favorite parts of the trimester. It is a great opportunity for them to learn about financial literacy. They love to work hard to earn money, and they sure love to spend it. Financial literacy is one of the greatest things I can teach my young students. It is a skill that can help them throughout their lives. My students love the Humphrey Books, Nerf Guns, Beanie Boos, Hoover Balls, Treasure Box, Gel Pens, Board Games, and Candy! They will work hard to earn money to buy these items. Knowing how to use money for good is a positive experience for my students.
