This is the third of the three-part video series about money. I hope you have watched the first two videos and learned from them. The first video showed the HISTORY OF MONEY. The second video was all about SMART MONEY- SMART KIDS by Rachel Cruze and Dave Ramsey. This video is going to teach you how to show your students how to spend, save and share their money through a writing assignment.
Now, this part is for students who are aged towards the end of a 3rd grade or 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th or in 8th. For kids that are 3rd grade or under, this probably isn’t for them because they don’t really know how to do an essay yet.
Student achievement rises significantly when teachers regularly assign homework and students are motivated to do it. As parents, we have to make a meaningful and beneficial homework for our students. And there is a number of strategies that can make homework less stressful, more enjoyable, and more meaningful.
Homework or assignment has long been a mainstay of education. It extends the time available for learning, and children who spend more time on homework, on average, do better in school. It can teach children self-discipline and responsibility and can help children develop good habits and attitudes. Homework can help children develop good habits and attitudes. It can teach children self-discipline and responsibility. More importantly, it can encourage a love of learning.
So to continue, we will talk about how to show students how to spend, save and share their money through a writing assignment. The tools to reach this goal are SAVING, SPENDING, AND SHARING. I will show you exactly how to teach my students to use the strategy to form an essay.
As I have said on the video, I have some downloadable PDFs that you can use. You can download the PDF at www.nymathtutor.com/money.
So if you have watched the video I talked about the 7 steps to teach you how to show your students how to spend, save and share their money through a writing assignment.
Such steps are as follows:
STEP 1: Ask your child what they can do about with money.
You should take out the first sheet of the PDF, print out the brainstorming sheet and have them write down the idea as many as they can.
STEP 2: Group the answers.
You going to be using the 1st page and the 2nd of the 3 column chart. Ask your child to try to group the items into 3 categories. See if they can come up with spending, saving and sharing. Just need to guide them.
STEP 3: Name the groups.
After they got the group separated. You’re going to name the groups and they will be able to come up with spending, saving and sharing. Just lead them the direction.
STEP 4: Fill in the groups.
You want to make sure you have at least 5 in each group. Help them if you need to.
STEP 5: Circle the favorites.
You want to pick 3 items from each column and have them circle their 3 favorite choices from each group.
STEP 6: Fill in the “What and Why chart”.
You can see that we have 3 choices (spend, save or share). Have your students fill in the chart in each spot. Then, to the right they’re going to write down “Why those things are important” and we have the body of paragraph (1, 2, and 3) and conclusion.
STEP 7: Writing an essay.
We are going to show our children how to write a great essay on spending, saving and sharing money and this is the final step.
An essay is a short piece of writing on one particular subject written by a student and if your child is having a lot of trouble with writing. I have a book on sale at Amazon that can help your child how to write a perfect essay.
I hope you enjoyed our discussion and I really think you should give it a try. Believe me, it definitely works. Will see you next week. BYE for now!!!
