It’s never too early to start teaching our learners about the value of money and how to handle finances. The onus is on us adults to model sound financial habits because you can bet your bottom dollar (hopefully your finances will never reach this point! 😊) our learners are watching us. Some children were asked particular financial questions and their answers are quite revealing.
- Q: What is a credit card used for?
- A: To swipe. If you don’t have money and the credit card does, then you can buy stuff.
- Q: When a person is older and they finally stop going to work, how will they pay for things like food, a house or a car?
- A: They get if from other people, like their grandson.
- Q: If a person wanted to buy a new car and didn’t have all the money needed to buy it, what would they do?
- A: Get a bike. You could get one with a basket on the front and put your stuff in there
Funny, yes, but clearly our learners need appropriate financial education! We have gathered some resources below that can support your efforts to teach your learners about money. Good luck!
