This product is so jammed pack that I am going to try and explain everything that is in this bundle!
I wrote a blog post about how I run a CLASSROOM ECONOMY
in my classroom.
During this process, we have had wonderful conversations about vocabulary and have related the money and coupons to real life. I decided to bundle these ideas and *SIMULATIONS* into one giant unit!
In this product you will find out how I integrate Personal Financial Literacy TEKS and the Social Studies TEKS into my room.
**Unit is broken up into PHASES. I wrote phases instead of days because everyone's social studies block is different.
Foldables for important vocabulary
**Kids apply for jobs. Fill out an application. Earn a Salary. Budget their money. If you use my classroom coupons, there is a recording sheet so they can mathematically calculate their receipt.
**Have your kids move into communities with specific perks. Different cards will appear on the screen at your leisure with unplanned happenings. This leads children to learn about how it is important to save money for unplanned expenses.
**Writing prompt foldable for planned/unplanned expenses
**Editable template attached to create communities to meet the needs of your classroom
