Ashley Holland's Kindergarten Class
The JA Classroom of the Week is Ashley Holland’s Kindergarten class at Alvaton Elementary. Her class was led by JA Volunteer LaFaithe Carver who is the Head Teller at American Bank & Trust. The Kindergarten Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Ourselves” and it uses storybook characters in read-aloud and hands-on activities to introduce the role people play in an economy. Through engaging, volunteer-led activities, young students learn about individual choices, money, the importance of saving and giving, and the value of work. LaFaithe’s favorite part of volunteering for JA is the interaction with the children and seeing their smiling faces and how excited they get for the JA class.
