Children's Financial Education Class with Michelle Salsberry

3rd through 5th graders - please join us at Cover to Cover Books in Upper Arlington to learn about money through the World of Harry Potter.

In this new installment of our Learn to Earn programs, students will work within the magical world of Harry Potter to get an understanding of how to buy, barter and trade; how to write a check, and why it is an antiquated, but necessary skill; how to create a business plan; and how to manage sales and receipts for a small business.

In this introductory course to money and buying, students who have read the Harry Potter series will get a chance to experience the world of money through the magic of Gringotts, Diagon Alley and Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes joke shop.

Fans of the books will enjoy immersing themselves in the Wizard World and come away with some real world money skills!
The first class will be about: Buying, trading and bartering with Galleons, Sickles and Knuts.

Classes that will follow in the future include: Banking and Writing Checks in Gringotts Bank, Make your own Wizard Money; Wizarding Entrepreneurship: Fred & George make a business plan for Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes; and Buying and Selling in Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes.

We will announce more classes soon! Participants do not need to attend all of the classes to enjoy, join one, or join them all!
