Here are links to games, activities and simple lessons to share with them. Since California does not require financial education in our schools, these weeks at home are a great opportunity for you to help them learn some key life skills. Whether you’re a parent or a teacher who’s staying involved with your students while school is on hiatus, you can encourage them to be better consumers and citizens by understanding money.

These are free from many groups that deliver financial education in classrooms and we have compiled the links in one place for easy access, so they can learn from home. Please share this with other families and educators. We’re all in this together!
