Class Experience

Together, we will learn how to round numbers to the nearest hundred thousand, ten thousand, thousands and hundreds place, and how to add and subtract multi-digit numbers. Students will also get experience making decisions about how to spend money, how to use a spreadsheet to track spending, and how to make choices based on budget. 

I have taught rounding, estimating, and subtracting multi-digit numbers at the elementary/primary level for 20 years, and done the "Million Dollar Shopping Spree" activity with my brick-and-mortar students for five years. 
There is no homework per se, but this is really more of an independent project type of class. Videos will be fairly short and consist mainly of instructions for the first lesson, after which students will work on their own to "spend" their money and track their spending on a spreadsheet. There won't be any discussion questions during the week, but students may want to check in for help with the teacher. Students will be asked to post their updated spreadsheet after each day's spending. 1:1 meetings can be arranged for students who need additional support.  This is a class that can be as much or as little as learners make of it. They may spend only a few minutes looking through the catalogs and filling in their spreadsheet, or they might spend more time and effort on it. It should take no more than 15-20 minutes per day to complete their work.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
The spreadsheet for tracking spending will be on Google Sheets. Families have the option to create a copy of the spreadsheet for their learner to complete digitally, or it can be printed and completed as a hard copy. Some links to YouTube videos will be posted in Lesson 4, which will teach students more about financial concepts such as investing and saving.
