Aldersgate UMC is a host church for Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University classes for adults. The Ramsey group also has a resource for children called Financial Peace Junior, based on some of the same topics as the adult version. The earlier a child learns about money and how to manage it, the more likely they are to remain out of debt during their adult years.
One summer, we thought it would be fun to create a financial class for children – staying true to the FPU lessons of planning, saving and spending wisely. Out of that came Funny Money! The class is six weeks long and is developed for kids going into the 4th – 6th grade in the fall. There is a fair amount of basic math and reading skills that younger children don’t have yet. We have added our own zany assortment of games and activities to make it fun and engaging.
The class is free, but registration is limited and parent volunteer hours are required. To register, go to: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeCaNrPX9zvck2cyvAsquJ1VsXzLc5UMa0isXf1XWL4ntzW5g/viewform
