As we kicked off Term 3, Room 17 got their teeth sunk into our Social Studies learning unit which focuses on financial literacy. The vehicle that we are using to explore this is a classroom economy. As part of this we have looked at earnings, classroom jobs, fines and expenses. As a class we have identified different costs associated with each of these and we are now using these to manage ourselves and our classroom. Please chat to your child about what we are learning and doing in our classroom.
Please view the following video from Schoolhouse Rock – Dollars and Sense. This will give you some valuable information about money.
