Having money is great, learning to manage it wisely is imperative. First, the class has a discussion on the value and convenience of having a checking account. Then, they practice filling out deposit slips, keeping an account register, and writing checks. Tip: Checks aren't used the same way they used to be, it may be a good idea to explain how an account register is used with ATM checking.
In this ELL checking account worksheet, high schoolers read a selection about a couple saving money for their wedding. They answer 5 true or false questions about the reading before writing a short essay about whether the couple should or should not open a joint checking account, explaining why or why not.
Fourth graders become familiar with the ways people exchange goods and services. In this spending money lesson plan, 4th graders listen to a chapter from Henry and Beezus and record Henry's earnings and money spent. Students use correct vocabulary to discuss and record Henry's lending and spending practices.
Young spenders take a look at the best ways to save and spend money. This type of financial education is lacking in schools, so implementing this lesson would be of great value to your students. Things like bank checking account fees, amounts of interest on savings accounts, fees associated with credit cards, and the "cheapest" way to make purchases are all explored. Some excellent activities and worksheets are embedded in this fine plan.
