Do you know what makes our school the best place in the world? Other than the rock star teachers and creative little learners, it's the community that surrounds us. It's our classroom community, our school community and our small little community where we all live and support each other. My students come to school excited to learn about and explore their world every day! Our school is the only elementary school in our small town, so we really are a tight-knit family. That means if our students need something, we work for it. If they make a mistake, they learn and grow from it. And if we can make our learning more meaningful and fun, we do it! Our students come to school excited to learn about and explore their world every day! Previously, many of our students and staff were exposed to a world they've never seen. Our community slowly began to disappear under water. Hurricane Harvey impacted many of our lives, but you wouldn't know the loss by my kiddos’ bright and shining faces, the perseverance they show, or the kindness and friendship they pour from their hearts!
The variety of money games in this set will engage all levels of learners from those just learning about coins and values to those ready to learn about purchases and sales!
The best part of all is that the kiddos will be able to master these skills while having fun in a group setting.
Our classroom already works on a want/need and save/spend reward system, so these games will enable them to expand on what they are learning and apply it to a variety of real-life scenarios. These would also make great games to put out during our “Family Fun Friday” activity time.
