What educators are saying

Lots of options and variety for small group to independent practice and notetaking. I love the format this author uses and it aligns with my state standards.
I've said it many times, but these TEKS bundles are worth every penny. We own them all and use them every year!

    This incredible 4th Grade Financial Literacy Unit covers fixed and variable expenses, how to calculate profit, basic purpose of banks and financial institutions, the advantages and disadvantages of various savings options, and allocating allowance between spending, saving, and sharing.

    ⭐️ This Personal Financial Literacy Unit is also included in the 4th Grade Year Long TEKS Bundle. When you purchase the bundle you save 50% over buying the individual sets!

    Everything you need for a successful 10 day Financial Literacy Unit is included and all of the pieces work together seamlessly!!! This unit is separated into 5 days of lessons to teach before STAAR (covering the TEKS tested on STAAR) and 5 days of lessons to teach after STAAR (covering the TEKS not tested on STAAR - but oh so important for the real world!) This unit is specifically designed for my fellow Texas Teachers.

    ⭐️ This TEKS Specific Unit is Designed to:

    • Save you time
    • Take the stress out of finding TEKS centered resources
    • Expose your students to the rigor of STAAR

    This personal financial literacy review unit is jammed packed with everything needed to implement successful lessons, with engaging content to help your students understand and be prepared for the STAAR formatted questions. 

    ⭐️ What’s Included:

    • 9 page Student Notebook (all write-in, no cutting or gluing!!!)
    • 10 Printables
    • Vocabulary Bunting (with essential vocabulary from the unit)
    • 12 Exit Ticketss (covering the 3 STAAR tested TEKS)
    • 2 Unit Assessments
    • 12 Review Task Cards (2 versions: Print and in a Self-grading Google Form)

    • 3 No-Prep Games
    • Journal Prompts (perfect for Exit Tasks) (Download the "Bonus File")
    • Lesson plans for Days 1-10 (Download the "Bonus File")

    This is a TEKS centered unit. These Texas specific resources cover the TEKS and nothing but the TEKS, so that teachers don’t spend additional time sorting through what to use; there is no time to waste. As with all of my resources, it is designed with STAAR in mind. This resource is designed for everything your 4th graders should know to be prepared for STAAR and to be successful in 5th grade and beyond.

    ⭐️ Included TEKS:

    • 4.10A Distinguish between fixed and variable expenses
