Danny Dollar: Make Your Own Money

Description: The MCEE is excited to invite you and your students to participate in the newest Danny Dollar program! Through the newest Danny Dollar book in the series, Make Your Own Money: How Kids Can Earn It, Save It, Spend It, and Dream Big, your students will learn important financial literacy skills to help them learn how to make and save their own money. Danny Dollar has inspired countless children around the world to make, save, and spend money wisely, and to dream big. Now the “King of Cha-Ching” returns to take kids on a how-to journey toward financial literacy, with tips and guidance for making money and minding their own businesses. With Danny as their money-savvy guide, readers get answers to questions like “What is money?”, “How do I make money?”, and “Why should I become an entrepreneur?”  It teaches essential life skills for handling money (how to open a bank account, create a budget, invest, and donate).

Stock Market Game (ONLINE!)

Description: The Mississippi Stock Market Game (SMG) is a simulation of a real market, designed to involve students in the world of finance and investing as a means of helping them learn about how a market economy works. Student teams of 3 to 5 students invest a hypothetical $100,000 in stocks and compete for the best portfolio performance. There are two separate 13-week programs each year; one in the Fall and one in the Spring.

The program is available to all public and private students throughout the state of Mississippi in grades 4 through 12. The program is adaptable for many different classes, including social studies, mathematics, economics, business, technology, gifted, MOD, Special Education, and club activities. Students learn to develop team strategies, make decisions, and become informed about investment and economic terms. They also learn to see the connection between world events and their investments.

In this ONLINE ON-DEMAND teacher training, learn how to implement the SMG in your classroom! (Takes about 5 hours to complete.)

For: 4-12 grade teachers (Required for all teachers that are NEW to SMG!)
