A Kinder Lesson In Economics

A Kinder Lesson in Economics

Today representatives from Mid Penn Bank came to kindergarten to teach them some basic lessons about economics.  Kinders learned about wants verses needs as well as some other important lessons about using money wisely.  Students were read the book "Three Cups" and talked about the importance of giving, saving, and spending money.  The book is written from the perspective of a five year old so it is perfect for our kinders and their families.  The book provides an opportunity for great family conversations about what is important and valued in your household when it comes to finances.  You can find some cups (label them give, save, and spend) and start your own adventure.  A big thanks to Mid Penn Bank for teaching our youngest children valuable lessons.
