The Centsables The Centsables
The Centsables is a first-of-its-kind multi-media initiative that helps kids ages 6 – 12 gain practical money skills. Using animated characters and an entertaining approach, the program turns financial concepts into lessons kids can easily absorb and apply. All content reflects the Common Core Standards and Jump$tart’s National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education. Centsables lesson modules can be tailored to fit into even the most overburdened curriculum. And the program earns high grades from teachers, because it teaches real-life skills, but requires no extra work for them. So life-long financial responsibility can become an integral part of every child’s school experience. Read More...
