How Does QuarterSprout Work?

FINANCIAL LITERACY

Students develop habits that will stick with them for life. They have a checking account for spending and income, and a savings account that accrues interest. During the year, students learn about the importance of planning ahead for spending, saving, and charitable donations.

  • Dividing income between spending, saving, and donating
  • Completing job requirements
  • Paying bills on time
  • Monitoring a credit score
  • Taking on practical risk

CLASSROOM ENGAGEMENT

Students practice real life skills in a safe environment where making mistakes is good. In a company, students hire other students to assist with company duties.

  • Multitask! Teach financial literacy and do your classroom management at the same time
  • See data on classroom engagement through the year
  • Set your classroom up to run itself

SOFT SKILLS

Students emotions are engaged in this realistic mini economy. Payment for employment can be tracked through the year with a calendar. Every student has the job to participate in class, so the calendar acts as an engagement tracker for the whole year.

  • Being a reliable employee
  • Being an effective boss
  • Delegating responsibilities in a company
  • Conflict resolution
  • Finding a market need for a company
