Jumpstart Standards

If you're interested in what your kids need to know when, you may want to check out:
  • The Kids' Money for Teachers home page. We've got a complete listing of the Jumpstart financial education standards and links to Jumpstart's home page and to the actual document.
  • The 4th, 8th and 12th grade home pages for a listing of financial educational objectives for students as they complete each of those grades.

Our next step is to provide the lesson plans, materials, programs and activities and other resources you'll need to accomplish those objectives. Please feel free to respond with any comments or suggestions. Thanks.

The NEW Kids' Money

I'm embarrassed to say I've been touting it for years, but have just started creating it over the last few days. There's now a Kids' Money for Teachers area organized by grade level with a sprinkling of resources. The concepts for the Home Page, the Parents' Page and the Kids' Page are indicated by the TOPICS and RESOURCES lines. It's going to be a big job but I can already see it taking shape. Please let me know what you think. Thanks.
