Hi,

I am Nathan. I work for SR Education group developing educational resources for educators. Nice to meet everyone.
My name is Heather and I've recently been hired as a Technology Integration Specialist. I live in MN so I enjoy every minute of summer. When I find the time I enjoy going to the lake, skiing, fishing, and spending time with family and friends. I'm hoping to find free webinars for my staff regarding technology. If you know of anything, please let me know.
Thanks!
Heather

You may be interested in the Fairy Tale / Folk Tale CyberDictionary, which comes with a lesson plan aimed at beginning readers, and has additional suggestions from other teachers.

Hi
My name is Prakash and I have been teaching finance for over 2 decades. I decided to share my teaching experience through the form of children's stories and wrote 20 children's books on finance. I have 2 young boys, ages 6 & 7 years old, and these books are really meant for kids in their age group, though anyone can read these books and learn about finance. I wrote these books in the form of children's stories with financial lessons in them. Currently you can get these books on Amazon, Follett Library Resources or through our website (most desirable option) www.finance4kidz.com We are also currently translating them into Chinese, Spanish, French and Arabic. In addition, I am trying to get my books animated so that they can go on ipads, They should also be available on kindle soon.

I am very interested in knowing if anyone here has "animated" their classroom examples, or stories, and if they did it themselves. I would like to do the animation myself if it isn't too complicated. I am open to suggestions.

BTW, one of the top 6 % school districts in the nation has adopted our books for use in the classroom. Other schools and libraries have also been using them. These books come with free lesson plans for educators. If you are interested in adopting these books in your schools (elementary, middle, high, home) or in any other form, please do write to me off-list (finance4kids@gmail.com ) or if you are interested in collaborating.

Thanks

Prakash,
Your illustrations look 'simple' enough that they would lend themselves to Flash programming. Bit of a learning curve, but here is one example done by a 12 year old (click on the word information). And another done by a 13 year old. A bit expensive and a bit of a learning curve.

Free but not quite as sophisticated is Scratch.

One more thought.... You may wish to try to involve your own children through their school in the Global Virtual Classroom contest... perhaps even 'consulting' with the team on the topic of finance! Registration closes on September 24. A teacher needs to be involved.

Thanks for your suggestions. I have downloaded scratch and will play with it. I will ask my school to see if they want to participate in the GVC project.
Thanks
Prakash
