A Cool Finish with a Personal Finance Touch!

Hello Everyone!
Phew!! We are in the final stretch!  9 more days of first grade fun!! In math we are finishing up with a "cool"personal finance unit.  It's a unit that includes just about everything we've studied in math and social studies. Money, addition and subtraction, fractions, wants and needs, everyday living, etc.  I put together a little unit last year that now includes a personal finance section. "Popsicle Pizzazz" includes some cross- curricular learning/review opportunities that will help the last few days go down smoothly! Here are a few pics.

A PERFECT book to read if you want to combine cool popsicles and personal finance is a recent discovery, "Root Beer and Banana" by Sarah Sullivan.  It is about two girls who accidentally discover friendship and charitable giving through ice pops!! I am so excited to share this story with my littles!!Root Beer and Banana

The popsicle unit is now about 75 pages, but you certainly can pick and choose which learning opportunities to print and do! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Stay tuned for pics of our last few days of learning celebrations!!! We appreciate your support!
Well, off to get all my Popsicle sticks ready for next week!!  I hope you have a cool end of the year!!
