Financial Friday Resources with Games and Books

My students need fun ways to reinforce learning. The board games are perfect, as well as the book Loaded.

My Students

My students are enrolled in Personal Finance classes as electives. Personal Finance is not required in our school, nor our state.

Students are here because they want to obtain skills and knowledge necessary to be financially literate and financially successful.

Business Education courses, including Personal Finance and Wealth Building and Management, are Career Technical Education (CTE) learners in the Accounting/Finance pathway. These students learn academic and technological skills applicable to the "real world."

CTE students have a high graduation percentage rate and are seeking higher education, apprenticeships, or on-the-job training for their next level of learning. The knowledge and skills learned in our courses provide students with the tools necessary to be successful at the next step as well as become lifelong learners.

My Project

Students learn in various ways. Games and books are great resources to reinforce classroom topics and content. The board games are a great reminder of fundamental personal finance goals...emergency fund, spend, save, stay within your means, budgeting, bank accounts; and Loaded is a great read reinforcing how behaviors and the personal understanding of money affects students' relationships with their personal management of money.

With a large group of students, it is important to have enough copies of games and books for engagement to take place for the class.

Games and books increase the already-present enthusiasm students have in this class. Learning can be fun!
