So glad to be back in class with this group again today! They are so energetic and eager! We started the day reviewing some concepts that seemed to be an 'issue' based on the recent quiz. Parents, in case you don't know, I don't return quizzes to students until class is dismissed. I fold quizzes so only the student name is visible. The 'goal' of each quiz is for me to understand concepts that need reinforced. At home you can celebrate your students' accomplishments and encourage them to review concepts that were struggles.
Moving on, we reviewed homework assigned from the Citizens Guide. It is SO important that students are up-to-date with homework assignments! Please help ensure your student is keeping up!
Finally, we compared and contrasted different forms of payment - cash, checks, debit cards, credit cards, gift cards. This is always fun, as student begin to understand the different forms of payment and the advantages/disadvantages of each. Of course they REALLY love taking my cash, checks, gift cards and credit cards and analyzing them! 'Mrs. Kelli, why do you have so many cards??' ... 'Because I need them to teach you about them!'
1. Students should review pages 19 - 20 and complete page 21 in the Citizens Guide.
2. We do 'jump around' in the Citizens Guide. To date, students should have completed the following pages: 1 - 11; 13-14; 17-18 and this week page 21 as noted above.
3. Next week we celebrate our accomplishments so far this year with activities to reinforce banking activities.
4. When we return to class in 2020, we move on to job related skills and interviewing.
