Elementary/Middle School Financial Literacy Programs
NEWS: Due to the onging COVID-19 pandemic, we have regrettably postponed our spring 2020 school financial literacy programs. But that doesn't mean you can't still learn! Below are some links to popular online learning resources for elementary and middle school students.
Be A Smart Saver is part of Teach Children to Save, a national program that raises awareness about the important role that banks and bankers play in helping young people develop lifelong savings habits. Each spring, Institution for Savings employees visit area elementary schools to teach young students about the importance of saving money and being a 'Smart Saver."
At the end of the interactive hands-on presentations, students should be able to:
- Identify the things they can do with money (earn, spend, save, share)
- Learn the difference between needs and wants
- Make a savings plan
