Learn about personal finance while building math and language skills by using accessible children's stories. Inclusive learning environment for all students (esp. neurodiverse/autistic, ADHD, & other disabilities).

Class Experience

Beginner Level
  • Students will improve their understanding of concepts related to personal finance, such as saving money, spending money, decision-making, opportunity costs, and needs vs wants. Students may improve their reading comprehension as we work through the different stories. Students may improve their math skills as we work through various scenarios of budgeting or creating spending plans.
I am a former special education teacher and created and implemented cross-curriculum for middle school students with disabilities. 
Multiple ways of accessing content as well as showing understanding. Students may speak, use chat, use a device, write full sentences, write words, draw pictures, or use physical indications. Small class size. Experienced teacher & parent.

A generic summary sheet will be available to print to capture learning about the topic. Additional activity sheets will be offered to complement the story but are not required for participation. Students are asked to have a pencil and paper available during class. Additional supplies that may be helpful include color pencils or crayons.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
These stories represent diverse characters, cultures, and situations as recommended by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and the Minnesota Council on Economic Education and many have received the Excellence in Financial Literacy Education Award. 

The level of information ranges from first to third-grade equivalent and I will provide additional resources if the student is interested in going deeper. 

We will be using YouTube and Google Slides during class. No account is required for students to access materials.
