Second-grade students at Fayetteville Elementary School participated in 1st Ed Credit Union’s Grocery Store Workshop on April 10. Two groups of 40 students learned about credit unions, money identification, and budgeting before they were given $10 to shop for breakfast items from our “grocery store”. Once the students chose their items, they had to figure out if they had enough money to buy them before they went to the cashier to make their purchases. After the workshop, the students discussed what they learned. Some of the student’s responses were “You don’t always get everything that you want”, “You don’t have to spend all of your money”, and “It’s expensive to buy groceries”. 1st Ed’s Grocery Store Workshop is based on the lesson called “Making Spending Decisions” from Practical Money Skills.
