Children in grades 2-3 will learn how to save, spend, and be charitable with money. In the book, Three Cups by Tony Townsley, a 5-year-old boy gets an allowance from his parents each week. They decide how to divide his allowance into three cups; one for spending, one for savings, and one for charity. This begins a wonderful journey for the little boy.
