Principal Dr. Ashanti Alexander of Chickasha’s Lincoln Elementary School chose to incorporate Personal Financial Literacy education into the fifth grade curriculum this year to educate students about money matters. Recent research has shown that kids are ready to learn about money at an early age. Money management skills learned very young, along with money habits inspired and encouraged by adults, have the greatest impact on kids’ success with personal finance by the time they reach adulthood. When it comes to financial literacy, children have a lot to gain.

With the leadership of the district math coach Barbara Cole, regular personal financial literacy lessons were presented to all fifth graders. The topics presented in the lessons included: learning and understanding basic financial vocabulary, distinguishing between “needs” and “wants”, the importance of budgeting and saving money, how to be a smart shopper, performing basic banking transactions, different methods to pay for a purchase, borrowing money and the basics of entrepreneurship. The lessons were presented in fun, creative ways, including games and hands-on-activities.

During the lesson on saving money, 5th grade student, Bryce Collier presented an interesting fact that he had learned involving the amount of money that could be saved by collecting dimes in a 2 liter bottle. Surprisingly, the amount of money is between $550 and $700. A “dime challenge” was made between the 5th and 6th grade classes to see which class could collect the most money in dimes using a 2 liter bottle for collection over a 4 month period. Chickasha business men, David Snell from Arvest Bank and State Farm Insurance Agent Rick Johnston agreed to match the amount collected. On May 15th, the last “Personal Financial Literacy” lesson was presented and the 5th grade and 6th grade 2-liter bottles of dimes were taken to Arvest Bank and poured into the change counter machine. Together the classes collected $257.10 in dimes with the 6th grade winning the challenge. The money collected, along with the matching donations will be used for the educational needs of Lincoln School students.

Mr Alexander didn’t think up this. This is about 1/2 truth maybe at best. Mrs. Kennedy is the one to go to she’s a principal there too. My brother has 14 kids here for his bday and not 1 of them know anything about this dime thing and they haven’t heard of the cole lady. One of them said she came one time to their class. They don’t know anything about finance either and they’re all in different classes. Things that make ya go hmm. Try again and try putting this more at hs. We get no tax talks or money help only had 1 class as a fresh. and it was dumb.
