April is Financial Literacy Month. Even very young children can begin to learn about the power of money and how to wisely save and spend it. Visit the Children’s Department at Rodman Public Library all month to see the wonderful display behind our desk and take home some books (and educational games) to share with your family.
If you are a teacher or homeschooling parent looking for great ideas to use in the classroom, you may want to download one of these wonderful “Money Smart” guides – a series of lessons and activities developed by the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) with consultation from the CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau).
“Money Smart for Grades Pre-K-2 Parent/Caregiver Guide”
“Money Smart for Grades 3-5 Parent/Caregiver Guide”
“Money Smart for Grades 6-8 Parent/Caregiver Guide”
