Kiddynomics PD for Pre-K-2 teachers

Posted on April 9, 2018

This one-evening professional development program introduces pre-K and grades K–2 educators to five interdisciplinary lessons that use popular children’s books to introduce young children to basic personal finance and economic concepts, such as scarcity, choice, goods, services, saving, spending, and banks. Lessons demonstrated in the program make use of the following popular children’s books:

  • Betty Bunny Wants Everything
  • Dr. Seuss’s ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book!
  • An Orange in January
  • Just Saving My Money
  • You Can’t Buy a Dinosaur with a Dime

Taught by Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia economic education specialists, this program can be used to meet state and national standards in personal finance, economics, social studies, as well as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Participants will receive 2.5 hours of professional development credit (Act 48 in Pennsylvania for certified teachers), dinner, and all curriculum resources.
