Family Money Math Nights are a great way to get parents involved and expand math education into the home. And what better way to teach math than through money! Everyone has an interest in money – parents and children alike. Schools are committed to closing the achievement and opportunity gap for all children and to accomplish this, the full support and involvement of students’ families is necessary.
Family Money Math Nights are developed by the Kentucky Council on Economic Education through funding by Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky (TMMK). Our goal is to engage families in their children’s learning and academic development. This kit includes the how-to set up a Family Money Math Night and hands-on activities for preK-5 students and their parents working together to learn about earning, spending, and saving, using math applications.
Stock Market Game Afterschool - We will also share the Stock Market Game Afterschool curriculum. The SMG Afterschool program is extremely flexible. SMG trading windows are available throughout the year and the self-guided Challenges allow teams to progress at their own pace.
