Elementary school students are curious about their world and how it works. They are good at classifying information, solving problems and finding the logic in a situation. This workshop using Financial Fitness for Life (grades 2-3 and 3-5) will help accommodate this intellectual curiosity without sacrificing any of the more playful aspects of learning. The active learning lessons use engaging strategies that enable students to develop the math and English skills which will be tied to the New National Common Core Standards.  This program also allows teachers to differentiate their teaching pedagogy.  Visit the Financial Fitness for Life website to learn more about the publication and how it could enhance your curriculum. Registration for this workshop begins at 8:30 a.m.
