Help them build a solid financial foundation
Almost everyone wishes they had learned about money sooner. In fact, 63% of Americans think financial education should be offered in school
And research out of Cambridge University 2 supports financial education in kids as young as 3.
Your students can begin building an understanding of money with the basic concepts of Save, Share, Spend, and Earn. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Berenstain Bears Financial Literacy Program – to bring these concepts to your classroom with fun, age-appropriate education.
The program is built for children under the age of 10. The zero-cost initiative uses reading and activities to help your students learn how to earn money – and what to do with it.
"Thank you to MHV and their staff for providing this great program. Our students, and staff really enjoyed the reading and activity. We look forward to working with MHV again!" ~ Lynnette Williams
Here’s what your students will experience
We’ll gather your students around for a reading of
The Berenstain Bears Visit the Credit Union. The story explores the concept of saving money and introduces kids to credit unions.
Your class will enjoy a scenario-based activity to help put the Save, Share, Spend and Earn concepts into practice.
Meet the Bears
The Berenstain Bears – live and in-person! Brother and Sister Bear will visit your class and be available for a group photo.
Each student will receive a goody bag that may include coloring pages, a Berenstain Bears book, and more.
