Kids and Math Not Mixing? Try THIS!

14 Apr

So kids don’t always care for numbers and they may be tired of their money sheets at school where they have to add the coins together. Well today I got a little one extremely excited about adding money.

All I did was give her a handful of spare change and told her she can have as much as she can count. This got her extremely excited. I gave her as many tries as she wanted and she ended up counting the correct amount of all of it and got to keep it! A whole .53 cents!!!! 🙂 She was pretty excited and learned how to count money a little better.

It was a good experience for both of us. She added money to her piggy bank and I got rid of change in my car.
