"Creating Young Investors, One at a Time"
I think it is extremely important that we begin teaching our children about saving money and long-term investing for retirement. The Stock Market Game is an excellent tool for teaching children about long-term investing. My job is to make that process easier for you. A great place to start would be to to join me for one of my free online workshops (GoToMeeting). On the right side of this page you can click on "Free Online Workshops." There, you will find my September online workshop schedule. Please contact me if you have any questions.
Thank you for visiting my web-page and I hope you find this site helpful.
The Stock Market Game is a ten-week simulation of Wall Street trading that provides a frame work for teaching students about stock market, business, and economic decision-making and is integrated through Social Studies, Economics, Math, Language Arts, Technology, Life Skills, and Business Education. Offered each fall and spring, the Stock Market Game is designed to help students understand the stock market. Teams of one to three students compete in elementary, middle, and high school divisions. Each team (or student) is given a hypothetical $100,000.00 to invest in common stock on the NASDAQ and the New York and American stock exchange.
