Money Doesn't Grow On Trees: Basic Money Talk For K-6th Grade Lapbook

Money Doesn't Grow On Trees: Basic Money Talk For K-6th Grade Lapbook


Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees-Basic Money Talk for Grades K-6 is the first in a series of Lapbooks designed to teach financial responsibility values starting at a young age. This is not your typical ‘money lapbook’. In order for children to grow up to be self-sufficient and responsible in their finances, we must instill basic concepts, that sometimes, up until now, have not been taught, or even discussed, in the home.

Do you want to make sure that your child(ren) don’t grow up to be a member of a growing population of young adults that are being dubbed ‘The Generation of Entitlement’? Simply put, we can’t wait until children are in the teen years to start teaching the value of earning what you get, and how to be responsible in spending what they earn. Children have to be taught concepts, such as: what a job really is, how parents get the money that is used to run the household, the family budget, how much money it takes to run the household, how banking works, the fact that there has to be real money in the bank in order to write a check or use a check/debit card, and, the big one--that money is not love!


Be sure to keep an eye out for each Lapbook or Lapbook Journal in the series! Subsequent Lapbooks in this series expand upon principles and concepts from the last Lapbook through deeper research and more thorough definitions and activities. Junior High/High School levels will do Lapbook Journals. However, you can start the series in any Lapbook according to your child’s age/grade level. Once complete, your child(ren) will be ready to face the world when they strike out on their own with a full understanding of what it takes to be financially responsible adults who can take care of themselves, and they will know things that a lot of high school graduates of this day and age do not know, which are things as simple as writing a check, balancing an account and reconciling their account after using check/debit cards, how to budget, how to save and what to save for, and how to give. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter so that you can be notified when each Lapbook is released!

This has turned out to be a great resource for a class I am teaching for students with ID. They are so excited each week to see what we are doing and are talking to their families about money. So far so good! [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
