Happy March is Reading Month! Community Financial’s Education Partnership Coordinators participate in many “March is Reading Month” activities in our partnering schools, and are very busy reading to students this month!
Financial Literacy, Kindergarten through Fifth Grade
At Community Financial we believe that financial literacy can, and should, begin at an early age. There are lots of books for elementary students that help with saving, earning, spending, donating, and other general money concepts. Education Partnership Coordinators read many of these books yearly to elementary students.
Below is a list of enjoyable books for younger students to begin their journey with financial education:
