The Making Good Choices Financial Literacy Series was created by a project team comprised of ESL/ELD Teachers in Ontario and lead by the ESL/ELD Resource Group of Ontario (ERGO) subject association. The series includes several levelled texts created for English Language Learners in ELD Programs. The texts are intended to teach both emergent literacy skills and foundational numeracy skills. Each levelled text is accompanied by a guided reading lesson plan, running record, and other supporting resources.
