i totally agree… myclassroomeconomy is a free online tool for educators, but all the plans are free and downloadable. a great opportunity to teach your babies how to make a dolla out of .15cents!
What if all graduating students knew how to budget, how to save more than they spend, and how to resist impulse buying? What if they truly had the skills to be smart with their money? And what if they began learning these skills in elementary school?
My Classroom Economy enables any educator to teach children financial responsibility through fun, experiential learning. It’s a simple classroom economic system based on the idea that students need to earn school “dollars” so that they can rent their own desks.
The program is designed to overlay—not interrupt—a classroom curriculum, and connects to many of the Common Core Standards. It is customized by grade level. Everything needed to build a classroom economy is available on this site—for free. Thanks for visiting!
