From Books to Bucks takes reading, writing, listening, speaking, and math standards and integrates financial literacy through the use of developmentally appropriate children’s literature. Learn how to weave standards such as coin and bill identification and counting, earning, spending, saving, donating and other early finance and economics themes into your language arts block. This workshop promotes the integration of these concepts and others into Reader's and Writer's Workshop or a general literacy block. You will have time to create a lesson designed just for your classroom as well as develop a scope and sequence that will help you bring financial literacy into your classroom throughout the school year! Plus, take time to browse through a book collection from easy readers to chapter books! This workshop will teach you how to blend WI Model Academic Standards for Personal Financial Literacy such as Money Management, Planning, Saving, & Investing, and Critical Consumerism with Common Core State Standards.
