“It’s never too late to start.” Talk with Our Kids About Money Day is coming up soon – April 18, 2018. Did you register your Secondary Level 1 class?
This article is partially reprinted from June 16, 2014.
In designating the third Wednesday of April as Talk With Our Kids About Money Day, the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) is aiming to equip young people with the confidence and competence they need to make wise financial decisions. The organization recognizes that teachers have a key role to play in helping students improve their financial literacy. To support their efforts, it has created a series of lesson plans directly linked to provincial curricula that teachers of any subject can download free of charge at http://talkwithourkidsaboutmoney.com. These resources are geared especially to the Secondary I level, however, they can be adapted for any level.
