"I have participated for the last four years and my students still stop me in the hall to tell me how they use their bank, what they are saving for, what charities they contribute to and how they are more aware of how they spend their money.  As long as I can contribute to another generation of money managers I will take that opportunity.  I love this program and am very happy there are people who care about our children and their financial education."
- Rosalie Buenrostro, Sawer Elementary, Chicago

“The design of the workbook and dvd is very appealing. It is easy for the children to understand what they are to do. The songs are catchy. Most of all it is a turnkey program for the teacher to implement.  We look forward to the Money Savvy program every year. It is very instructionally sound, unlike some programs that we review.”
- Elementary School Teacher from Chicago Public Schools

" The overall impact of teaching students financial literacy and responsibility with the lesson plans provided are one of this program's best features. As a busy teacher librarian, drafting lesson plans can be overwhelming and time consuming. The design of the Money Savvy materials and lessons are easy to deliver, supports student engagement, and comply with 21st Century Learning Standards. In addition, providing and connecting parents with student/parent homework bridges parents' financial responsibility as a real-world event that students may not be exposed to or take for granted.
- Elementary School Teacher from Chicago Public Schools

"The data from our research into the Money Savvy Kids™ Basic Personal Finance Curriculum suggest that the Money Savvy Pig is a useful tool for helping promote early education regarding saving, investing and business. And, as an extra bonus, kids, teachers and parents seem to love the little guy."
- Dr. Mark Schug, Senior Fellow with the National Council on Economic Education

"I truly do believe that Money Savvy Kids was one of the most valuable learning tools I have used in my 33 years of teaching!"
-First grade teacher from North Dakota

"The curriculum is very well done and organized. The workbooks are age appropriate and supported the activities we did in class. The Money Savvy Pig banks really hooked my students into learning about personal finance. I really like the CD that came along with the curriculum. The graphics and concepts on the CD engaged the children and held their interest. I'd love to be able to teach this curriculum every year."
- Second grade teacher from Washington

"Teaching Money Savvy Kids is drop-dead-easy!"
- 30-year veteran teacher from Arizona

"Money Savvy Generation has taken concepts related to consumer education, math and finance, and applied them in a practical way that students can understand. They make it positive and fun."
-School Superintendent from Illinois

"The students loved it and so did their parents. I got lots of good feedback from them at conference time."
- Second grade teacher

"I liked it even more than I thought I would. It was really fun. The kids loved it. They wanted to be money savvy kids.
- Second grade teacher

"The Money Savvy Kids solution was built to hit the ground running. The material can be taught without needing to take time out of the classroom to attend a training seminar. It was designed to be easy to execute in the classroom and we are comfortable teaching these somewhat sophisticated concepts to young children. As educators we are pleased that this curriculum is aligned to the standards; as teachers we are happy that it is well received by the parents as well as the children."
-First grade teacher from Illinois

"I have never taught personal finance to my class before because I felt the concepts were too difficult for them to understand. Your program proved me wrong. Thank you for the opportunity to teach such a great program."
- Second grade teacher from Washington

"Last year, the kids and I really enjoyed learning about the history of money and the four ways to spend/save, etc. money. The pigs are a great incentive and a clever way to teach children smart choices when it comes to money. The color transparencies are a great attention holder and a great way to convey the bulk of information. My class also learned the Money Savvy Kid song and put on a program for my principal by singing it and then relaying information they had learned through the unit. After I had taught the unit, I told my principal that I felt like the Money Savvy Kids program covered the State Second Grade Economics standards better than any social studies book I had ever used and it was fun to teach and fun to learn."
- Teacher from Indiana

"I'm so glad that they have created Money Savvy Kids. There is a real need for this kind of curriculum and there is nothing else like it available."
-Second grade teacher from California

"I wanted to let you how much my students and I enjoyed the Money Savvy Kids program. We had so much fun and I believe the students learned a lot about money and some of the choices they have. They really enjoyed our trip to the neighborhood bank. Since we completed the program, several times something in a lesson has prompted a reference to something they learned with the Money Savvy Pig."
-Second grade teacher from Illinois

"I wanted my students to understand the concepts of savings, investing, spending and donating. I have to say the children's learning and response to the program exceeded my expectations. My class learned these concepts (thanks to the Money Savvy Pig) and more. They became experts at knowing what goods and services were. They knew the history of money and had a good understanding of where money comes from."
-Second grade teacher from Washington

"I would like to share a moving story with you . We went through the lesson about charity last week and it had a huge impact on several of my students. This morning I opened the classroom door and an excited student greeted me with a bag of coins and bills and told me he and his sister had worked all weekend to earn money for the food bank. I was a little taken aback. I asked him what food bank he was referring to, and he said it was for the food bank my sister directs. He has never met her, and the food bank is not even in our area. He just took to heart the importance of giving to charity, and he knew my sister directed a food bank. I talked to his mom and I found out that he and his sister (who is also in my class) worked all weekend walking dogs and selling lemonade and cookies! The Money Savvy Kids lessons are powerful!"
