This program is an excellent way to encourage reading and reinforce the K-5 economics strand in the Social Science Standards of Learning, as well as promote saving for college. Focusing on the lessons and activities based on three featured books, this workshop helps teachers and librarians understand the concepts and ideas for presenting them to students in a meaningful and engaging manner.  The three featured books for 2020 are Ella Earns Her Own Money by Lisa Bullard, John Deere That’s Who by Tracy Nelson Maurer, and Spend It! by Cinders McLeod. Participants will receive free classroom ready lesson plans and discover ways to win free books for their school’s library and potential college savings money for their students.
