New Unit started today
I started the last unit today. It is on financial literacy. I actually love this unit and we discuss concepts such as interest, loans, college expenses and ways to pay for college, along with ways to save for retirement. Of course, a very short condensed version, but very good for this level. It is also skills your child can use throughout their lives. Your kids may ask you questions about car loans, house loans, etc. I just wanted to give you a heads up on why they may be asking. I also want you to know that I always worry about showing them the costs of college. It is scary on how much it costs and I don't want that to discourage any child from attending college. I make sure that I follow it up with the different ways to pay for college and how scholarships and grants can also help. This helps to emphasize the importance of good grades. As usual, they will have homework daily. The unit test is scheduled for Friday, March 9th which is the day before we leave for spring break. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me any time.
Thanks for supporting your child's education,
