MONEY

We are starting our unit on money. I encourage you to let you child use money from a piggy bank at home or purchase pretend money from the dollar store for your child to use while practicing. Being able to manipulate the coins when counting has a greater impact rather than drawing coins.

Grocery Ads Needed

The students will be using grocery ads in class. The students will shop through the ads and show the coin amount for each item purchased. If you could send in any ads that you may have from the newspaper at home or pick us up some from the local grocery store it would be greatly appreciated.
