TpT Seller Challenge: Week 3- Make Your Masterpiece

Howdy, friends.

I am on Week 3 of the TpT Seller Challenge! Whew! I cannot believe three weeks of summer have already passed! I am very excited to finally (did I say "finally?" I meant "FINALLY!")  finish creating my masterpiece which I am sharing with you this week!
Before the unveiling I want to thank, Sassy Schoolhouse, from neighboring New Mexico, who edited this product. I love collaborating with other teachers, especially experienced teachers who are starting a TpT store! Check out her FREE calendars for the upcoming year!

The newest addition to Kindergarten Down River is the Financial Literacy for Young Mathematicians Bundle. Within, you will find exciting resources such as:
  • essential questions to drive your instruction
  • interactive lesson activities to build content knowledge on income, wants and needs, goods and services, saving and spending, and charitable giving
  • graphic organizers to supplement instruction on subunits  
  • writing prompts to extend the learning and formatively assess your students on how they are understanding the content vocabulary for this unit of instruction
  • scenario cards for subunits to help students critically think about the financial choices they are making to build their decision-making skills, in color and black and white (sold separately too)
Financial Literacy Scenario Cards
  • assessments for subunits to be used for formative or summative information
  • favorite: the folds and flaps component!
    • FOLDS AND FLAPS allows students to build their knowledge of financial literacy in their interactive math notebooks or in a "lapbook" (created with a standard file folder as shown below- sold separately too)
If the bundle is just TOO much awesomeness for you...I decided to split up the specialized components (Scenario Cards and Folds & Flaps,) to meet the needs of more teachers!
I am excited to share this new bundle and all of its unique components with you!
What do you think?


  1. Hi Laura!
    WOW! This product is just awesome. I remember the first year we had to teach financial literacy. We couldn't find any good resources. I'm not in the classroom anymore, but I will definitely tell my former teammates about your product!

    1. Antoinette,
      Thank you for your sweet comment. Financial Literacy seems murky for many so I am hoping that this helps!


  2. This is wonderful. This is the first time I have ever made a spontaneous TPT purchase after reading a blog post. I think this topic is so important, and I don't have any resources for teaching it. I'm going to put these on a ring and use them as prompts for sharing during morning meeting.

    1. Deb,
      Thank you so much for your feedback! It means a lot. I appreciate you reading and your support! I really enjoy sharing my ideas and resources with others!


  3. Your masterpiece is A~Mazing! I love how you have thought of everything, plus separated it out if teachers just want certain parts of it. I love the lapbook!!!

    1. Bagby,
      Thank you for your comments and checking out the blog! I appreciate you taking the time to comment!


  4. Laura,

    I love the folds and flaps idea! I'm adding this to my wishlist. I know last year seeing financial literacy in the standards was scary to me because I didn't have much resources on it. I really like the layout of your blog too!
