1. Some benefits are learning stuff like how to pay off your credit card and to earn steady loot. Also how to like save your money for big dreams. And also what is good too is that you get to play video games in school and that also you can become a "guru" and it's fun because you can get help from your friends and you can help each other when people are confused too. And like when Mikey taught me how to get out of credit card debt. And you can make your own account too and it's fun because my family likes it too and we talk about it and it's really interesting they said. And that's some benefits of playing money Island.
Did you know that if you don’t pay your credit card fee that every time you avoid it will go up every single time you check it. And also did you know that liabilities take away from your earned income. These are the things that we learn from Money Island. Before money island I would have been so confused if I haven’t met money island. Money island teaches you so many things but instead of a boring way you get to learn in a fun way too, but still get the same learning power from it.
Body Paragraph 1:
Money Island is a great way to learn and have fun at the same time here’s why. When I was playing Money Island to become a guru I had to watch these clips to learn and then after take a quiz and when you didn’t make it you can watch the video again or try to take the test again to win. It really helps because it gives you these fun characters but yet it teaches you in the same way and it’s fun and good for me because I’m learning in the same way too. You also have to know how that you need to pay your taxes first. You should keep it because money island is really fun and it gives you quizzes to help you to learn. Money Island should continue it because Money island can teach you about how to balance your spending, saving, spending, and sharing and also how to not get into credit debt. I have also learned how to get out of credit card debt and you have to sell all that you have gems, businesses etc. We also learned about the money pie how you would have to learn how to save, share, spend, and invest. You also learn how the taxes you pay go to the government. Paying taxes to the government is like paying for the military or to fill in the potholes on the street. This money goes to the government so they can help our city. And also how if you don’t pay your credit card bill on time then you’ll fee will get bigger. These are the things why money island can teach you so many things and still have fun!
Body Paragraph 2:
Also if Money Island is gone kids would probably be sad and it won’t be that fun (for me) if money island is gone because it’s exciting and I think a teachers lecture is kind of boring. Sometimes our teacher gives us worksheets to do and it’s still learning too. You can also learn how to buy businesses and to make a lot of money. You can also buy gems too then you can sell them too and your businesses too. You can also make it easier for the teacher too so he or she won’t be stressed with all these worksheets. They also teach you how to always pay your bills first before you start a new quiz. They want you to pay first so in real life you wont be in debt of any sort. One time I was so interested in money island I asked my parents about money and how to budget too. And sometimes I would always talk about it. That’s how interesting Money Island is! But yet money island can play games like you're in a submarine and you have to dodge these rocks and there’s different levels. Everybody was helping each other with this so that's how we become a leader. And there in money island is a dictionary place where you have to kind of study the words to save stone broke. I would have to study it really hard and it worked so I won! Some other games are kind of boring. Money Island is always doing something like quests. You would have these quests that you would have to complete. Like tilting the scales to become a guru that was one of the hardest ones to me. You also get to learn assets and liabilities. Assets are like things that help you gain money and steady loot. Like gems or a business. Money island isn’t just fun and games it’s learning with excitement and positivity.
Money island is very interesting and fun everybody gets that but one of the main purposes that the school should keep money island is that the kids are learning and enjoying at the same time and I don’t think that we try to compete with each other! People are smiling when they complete a quest or level or doing a quiz, we are learning and playing games at the same time. A couple of times people were saying that money island is the best! And it’s so cool! This is why Money Island should be kept so we can learn and have fun!
