Yes, there is no typo in the title you saw. I had a similar reaction when I saw the curriculum for Social Studies for grade 1 students. However, as time went by, I realized that children as young as they should already have basic financial literacy.
As per Google, Financial Literacy means “the ability to understand how money works in the world: how someone manages to earn or make it, how that person manages it, how he/she invests it (turn it into more) and how that person donates it to help others.”
In CISM, my grade 1 students were very fortunate to have a parent volunteer to share with them the value of money and the benefits of saving and investing it.
Thank you to Mrs. Robrina Go-Barrera for sharing with our class her expertise and advice on sharing money.
Till our next adventure!
