My students need ten books on financial topics and six iPads for research that allow us to understand finances.
"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." -Benjamin Franklin. This quote is so very appropriate. Children need knowledge to grow and reap the rewards later in life. This is especially true when it comes to money and finances since decisions made today will affect their financial future.
My students thirst to learn new information.
They want to be challenged and enjoy building their knowledge base. With the challenge put forth by DonorsChoose.org and PwC to increase financial literacy, I have decided to start a extracurricular club to educate my students on as many aspects of finances as possible.
We need books on financial topics and iPads for research and games that allow us to understand finances. We will learn about the history of money, interest, and the stock market through books, games, and eventually financial planning. As they learn the history of money, they will discover what was used for trade and barter, then we will discuss currency in colonial times and today. They currently have a basic understanding of taxes, but they will learn how taxes affect their buying choices, associated opportunity costs, as well as how taxes are distributed. Then, they will apply what they have learned using financial management simulation games followed by lessons on investing and the stock market.
This topic is one of the MOST important lessons children can can learn because it is so relevant to their futures.
My intent is to make financial literacy fun so it makes a lasting impression on them and gives them the knowledge and the confidence needed to be financially literate the rest of their lives.Read More
