Personal Finance for Kids

Hello Everyone!
I know! It has been a long time since my last post.  I have had so much family stuff going on that I have been absolutely crazy tired by the end of the day.  I think things are settling in now, so I finally had a second to sit down and present a quick post.  Thanks for hanging in there with me.  I am so excited about how our poetry unit is coming along.  We have one more week and then I'll be ready to share some of my little poets' work!  They have been loving it!!
Until then, I wanted to share a new unit that we started incorporating into our math curriculum. Personal Finance.  Yes! You read that correctly. I don't know if you have that in your objectives, but in Texas we try to cover saving, spending, and sharing. Our adopted curriculum (Pearson) does a good job of supporting the objectives with technology based lessons, but if you know me, you know I have to have some things to accompany the curriculum in my math tubs.  I created a Personal Finance unit that I am sharing tonight. Here are a few pics from the 50 page unit.

All vocabulary words are included in a set of mini posters to post in classroom

The unit includes some whole group vocabulary activities and 6 math tub activities. I can't wait for my kids to learn through these hands on personal finance activities and I hope they will help you help your kids learn as well!
If you are interested, 

Let me know how it goes and if I need to add anything else.  
Well, that's all the time I have for now.  I promise I'll be back very soon!!  As always, thanks for visiting.  You are the best!!
