Cambridge Savings Bank (CSB) recently presented “Teach Children to Save,” part of its CSBsmart Financial Education Program, to the Butler School in Belmont, according to a press release.
The lesson encourages students to make a habit of saving money from an early age.
CSB has engaged Butler School children in its creative program for the past three years.
Maggie Weir, assistant vice president, assistant general counsel at CSB, read the book, “Just Saving My Money,” to the class. Each student received a piggy bank as well as a dollar in change to practice comparing the values of different coins.
“Lots of the students had conversations with their parents last night about saving and it's nice to see that they understand the concept of saving so much better,” said Audrey Ruddock, a kindergarten teacher at the Butler School.
“Teach Children to Save” coincides with National Financial Literacy Month.
