Personal and Financial Literacy
Students learn about jobs and experience as well as skills needed to do certain jobs. They learn about scarcity and how to plan for events. Students explore the use of credit cards and explain the benefits of savings.
I have broken down each TEK into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress. There are 6 skills in this unit! Each learning target contains intervention and enrichment skills. A student data sheet is included for students to reflect on their own learning for the unit. A teacher tracking sheet is included to make small group instruction easier!
Whole Class teaching in this unit contains:
Mini Lessons (Connection, Teaching Point, Active Engagement and Link to Ongoing Learning)
Flip Book for Note Taking (With Teacher Edition)
Decision Making Gallery Walk
Games and Engagement Activities in this unit include:
Resource Scarcity Sort
This unit is designed to print and go! I keep mine in a binder. You can put each day and all of the materials for that day in one sheet protector.
I hope this unit helps you with Guided Math by providing a whole class teach, active engagement, guided math activities and exit tickets for almost everyday- you can’t beat $1.20 per day for a complete unit!
