Within this personal finance literacy interactive notebook for 5th graders, students will create a detailed budget, learn to differentiate between sales tax, income tax, and federal taxes. They will also study checking accounts, savings accounts, stock markets, CD's, debit cards, credit cards, credit scores, "wants and needs" and learn about several other important topics that will help make them "Money-Wise" in the future.
This interactive notebook is 100% aligned to the Texas 5.10 Personal Financial Literacy TEKS with everything you need to prepare your students for the STAAR exam.
This is a great unit to teach your students about making wise financial decisions. It is never too young to embed these concepts. Besides several engaging activities, I have included a challenging and creative personal finance enrichment project menu and task cards for reviewing these concepts.
Who is it for?
- 5th Graders (10 to 11-year-olds)
- Math learners
- Gifted & talented students
About the Seller
After spending almost 30 years as a public educator, I am currently a "Differentiation Consultant" in which I've worked with districts adding enrichment materials to their curriculum and I am an adjunct field representative supervising student teachers.
Over the years I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade; as well as serving as a Curriculum Specialist, Testing Coach and finally a Gifted Specialist for many years.
I worked as a contributor to major textbook companies for seven years which caused me to realize there is a lack of authentic, challenging teaching materials that require little teacher prep and offer the rigor needed to meet the depth of our curriculum standards that students currently face. The products I offer require little teacher prep, are fun and creative and provide the level of rigor needed to challenge even your brightest learners.
