Yesterday, the 6-9 students hosted our 3-6 classes for our annual Toy Sale.The elementary children had the opportunity to act as personal shoppers for the 3-6 students as well as handling money. In our practically cash free world, children do not observe too many transactions involving real currency. The Toy Sale is a fun way of learning a practical skill. The older children love to direct the 3-6 shoppers to the best bargains and it is amazing how far a nickel can go. After the actual sale, the 6-9 children decide where they would like to donate the proceeds. Financial literacy generally develops in small incremental steps woven into the fabric of our everyday life.
