  • Resumes!

    Posted by Jenna Valentine-Turner on 10/17/2013

    Our 4th and 5th Grade Biz Kid$ are creating their own resumes!  Also, ask your student about the steps in securing a job!

    1) Think of a job you would like.
    2) Look for a job that you would like.
    3) Create a resume, fill out an application.
    4) Turn in the resume and application to management.
    5) Interview for the job.
    6) Start the new job.
     
    It is never to early to discuss how to achieve employment!  As a mother of 3 children, I can tell you that you blink and your kids are grown up and ready to step out into the real world.  Being open with the realities of job seeking will help your child to picture themself in a successful job/career.

  • KES Biz Kid$ Are Trucking Right Along!

    Posted by Jenna Valentine-Turner on 9/24/2013
    Biz Kid$ has started off on a great foot!  Ask your 4th or 5th grader about what it means to be an Entrepreneur...or how could their talents and skills end up making them money one day?  Or how about asking how those same skills could be used to help a charity or non profit organization!
     
    Our current and next rotation focuses in on the beginnings of currency and what people did to obtain goods and services pre currency.  There are some pretty creative forms of bartering...just ask your kiddo!
     
    I am looking forward to seeing how all of our Biz Kid$ do on their "Mental Homework" Assignment.  They are to "bring" and idea of something they could barter!  It can be a "good" or a "service!"  Cannot wait to see what they come up with!
     
    Until next time...
    Mrs. Turner!

  • What is a KES Biz Kid?

    Posted by Jenna Valentine-Turner on 8/22/2013
    Welcome Back Wildcats!  This year, all 4th and 5th graders will be taking Biz Kid$!  Biz Kid$ is a Financial Literacy Program that will serve students through their Daily Specials Rotation. Each 4th and 5th Grader will attend a Biz Kid$ session every 6 days!
     
    So what is a Biz Kid?  It is a kid who knows about money!  Sounds easy huh?  Well get ready, this year we will be learning about how money WORKS...and our role in the process! Bizid$ will be tracking the Stock Market, learning about compounding interest, understanding how credit and debit works, practicing budget making techniques, breaking down a paycheck, comparing prices on purchases, looking closely at how loans work...etc..etc...etc....
     
    The Biz Kid$ Curriculum is engaging and meets 21st Century Learning as it is often times problem/scenario based!
     
    To take a closer look at Biz Kid$ , link here:
     
    Please check back weekly, as the Biz Kid$ Blog will be updated often!
