What will be done with my students

Students will be taught financial literacy skills by:
Learning the value of earning money, as they earn money for doing specific tasks.
Learn how to budget their spending.
Discover the importance of saving money to obtain what they want.
Find out that every decision has an opportunity cost.

Items will be purchased for the classroom store. Students will earn "money" for various tasks and be able to spend their" money" in the classroom store. students will keep track of their money and budget for things they want and need.
