Goal

My goal for this school year is to increase positive behavior while exposing my students to financial literacy through the use of a classroom store. 

 

What will be done with my students

Scholars will be taught the precise language of income, expenses, saving, deposit, deposit slip, banking, withdrawal, etc. Scholars will be able to earn income as a reinforcement for following classroom and school expectations such as arriving on time, participating in whole and small group learning, achievement growth on assessments, submitting homework, participating in math centers, helping others, great daily behavior, etc. Scholars will also have expenses such as weekly housing expense, no homework, poor sub behavior, bucket dipper (putting peers down ), out of uniform, etc. Scholars will store their earned dollars inside of an envelope and on Friday’s they will fill out a deposit slip to deposit their money into an online bank account. Every two weeks scholars will be able to shop from the classroom store (Owl-Store). Scholars can select items from the $25, $50, $100, $200 bin deciding if they should save or spend their money. Each week different scholars will be selected as the bankers/tellers logging on to the online banking and informing the other scholars their balance to shop. 

 

Benefits to my students

Scholars will benefit from the classroom store by receiving tangible objects they have interest in and also displaying positive behavior. It will also raise awareness to how their parents also make challenging decisions financially. They will also receive valuable financial skills they can use in the future. 

 

Describe the Students

I am the third grade math teacher for 62 students at a Title one school.Two of the classes is identified as 3rd grade STARS . Third grade population consists of about 30% ESE students, roughly 40% reading one to two grade levels below. Almost all of the students receive free or reduced lunch. Although our students are living in poverty majority of them come to school ready and wanting to learn. 

 

Budget Narrative

The budget consists of toys found on Amazon to fill the classroom store. The kindle fire tablets will be used to log on to the online banking website as deposits are made and shopping days.
