Foundations in Personal Finance Middle School Ed.
Children are never too young to learn the valuable money and life skills in this newest offering from Dave Ramsey! Timeless financial truths, high energy and relatable young people make this a great introduction to prepare our children for successful adulthood. Beginning with a definition of personal finance, the videos further explore the 5 foundations of personal finance: Set aside a $500 Emergency fund; Get out of Debt; Pay Cash for your 1st car; and Invest and Give Generously. The consequent lessons expand upon this foundation and provide age appropriate explanations, visions for goal setting and a basic understanding of our emotional approach to money. With DVD driven content, each DVD contains 22 lessons (over 3.5 hours) directly corresponding to the six chapters in the student workbook. Each lesson includes a Biblical principle (with Scripture reference), readings, review activities, learning extensions and assessments. Student text aligns with state and national financial literacy standards. Also included in the DVD set is a Digital Teachers Book on CD-ROM, which includes reproducible materials, lesson plans based on a 9 week syllabus, student answer key, case studies, scripture reference list, pre/post tests and additional parent resources. Soft cover Student Workbooks are consumable and contain 144 pgs. Each student will need their own copy workbook which is sold separately. Kits contain one student workbook and the DVD/CD set. Introduce your middle schoolers to the life changing teachings from Dave Ramsey and his team, proving that the earlier they learn how money works the better off they will be! My only regret is that I did not have this foundational teaching during my middle school years... oh, the different decisions that would have been made! ~ Deanne
