Pre-Recorded Online Course – How Money Works – Understanding Money – Credit Cards – Ages 9-14 Yrs


In this 4 x week class, we will talk about what money is, how it works and focus specifically on financial understanding and how to use credit cards and loans responsibly.


The Pre-Recorded Online Course – allows your learners to watch the pre-recorded videos and do them at a time that is FUN for them! You can also spend extra time on the topics your child is most interested in. Since this is a flex class with no live meetings, students can log in at a convenient time to complete the week’s lesson. We will be going through each week as a group and I will post the lesson weekly (depending on which day you started).

The videos will contain the information required to give students a good understanding of each topic and each one will include homework for the students to undertake during the week, as part of a project.

Homework assignments will include compiling a budget, brainstorming ways to make money from things you enjoy, making a list of the things they want versus the things they need, and the process and terminology of opening a bank account. There will also be research assignments into compound interest, investment opportunities, and risk appetite. This will mean lots of interaction between me the teacher and learners after each class to get the homework assignments completed correctly.

After watching each video and completing the homework assignments, students will be provided with feedback and the specific next steps on how to create a process to manage their finances successfully.

Timeframe for the Week:
Mondays – The teacher will post the information needed for the week. Students can submit questions.
Tuesdays-Wednesday – The teacher can answer any questions pertaining to the topic of the week. The students will need to complete any homework assignments and answer any questions in the discussion.
Thursday – Students need to have all tasks completed and uploaded in the classroom for teacher feedback and discussion. Students will discuss it among themselves.
Friday – The teacher will provide feedback to the class and individual students.
Saturday – Sunday – The teacher will be available to answer any questions that the students may have for the week or the next week.

    Great. I was so cautious about enrolling classes online because of English. But, my kid really enjoyed this class. Teacher’s voice is energetic and inspiring. I’m about to search other classes by the same teacher. Now my son is into not only credit cards but also economy!
