Writing a personal savings statement

Saving money can help you achieve your financial goals.
- Why is saving money a good financial strategy?
- What do you feel is worth saving for?
- Create a well-crafted expository paragraph that describes why saving money is important to you
- Begin to plan for spending and savings decisions that are aligned with personal goals and values
What students will do
- Write a topic sentence that presents their values or ideas related to saving money.
- Write and organize at least three supporting sentences that broaden and deepen the points made in their topic sentence.
- Write a concluding sentence that summarizes key points or revisits ideas from the topic sentence.
Note: Please remember to consider your students’ accommodations and special needs to ensure that all students are able to participate in a meaningful way.
