New Financial Literacy Materials

The following was posted on the  [NATIONALFAMILYLITERACY-L]

The National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL) has partnered with the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to teach families the value of financial responsibility through “A Day at Dollar General: Learn While Shopping.” The interactive online game recreates the experience of shopping in a real store and encourages children to learn while shopping.

By expanding the definition of literacy to include smart financial habits, NCFL and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation are teaching children to make informed spending decisions that will help them reach their goals.

“A Day at Dollar General: Learn While Shopping” is tailored to families and children, providing them with a fun and interactive game that teaches good spending habits. The game has four sections that are quick and easy to complete.
