From Books to Bucks: Linking Literature and Money for Young Earners
From Books to Bucks demonstrates strategies to integrate financial literacy standards into reading, writing, listening, and speaking through the use of developmentally appropriate children’s literature. Explore numerous books and learn how to weave concepts such as coin and bill identification and counting, earning, spending, saving, donating and other early finance and economics themes into your curriculum. The star of the presentation, Maggie Lou the Money-Smart Marsupial, promotes the integration of these concepts and others. Leave with a self-created lesson designed just for your classroom that you can use when you return!
