Overview - BANKING FOR NONREADERS COMPLETE PROGRAM
Real-life banking with symbols teaches money-math skills for students with limited reading skills or nonreaders.
Banking for Nonreaders, by PCI's Janie Haugen-McLane, helps students with limited or no reading skills learn basic banking transactions to prepare for life in the real world. SymbolStix symbols by News-2-You support the text and allow struggling readers to read and understand the clear and simple text.
Students set up checking accounts and then practice writing checks, making deposits, withdrawing money from an ATM, making purchases with a debit card, maintaining a check register, and reviewing monthly balances on bank statements. Each banking activity relates to a real-life scenario, for example, students earn money by helping a neighbor clean her garage and then deposit that into a bank account or they pay for a birthday gift for a friend with a debit/ATM card. The program can be enhanced with PCI's MoneyCalc.
