How to Be Financially Smart in Pre-K

My Students

I work with an incredible group of diverse pre-kindergarten students. Most of the students come from low income families, so educational materials are hard to come by.

Early childhood grades have always been something that is very near and dear to my heart.

There are so many different cultures and personalities, but the one thing that my students all have in common is that they all love to learn and work together as a classroom community. They each have a lot to offer and share.

My Project

A play cash register and a set of play money will be a great addition to our dramatic play area. Financial literacy really starts at a young age. With the pretend ATM, checkbooks and career day books, we will be able to turn our dramatic play area into a play bank. The play register and money will allow my students to start comprehending how adults utilize money in their everyday life.

One of the most wonderful aspects of Pre-K is the idea of starting small.

This is the age group where we can introduce life long skills and the ability to recognize important emotions that will help enable them to become contributing citizens in the future.
