After the last 2 weeks working with money, counting coins with touch points, finishing the book Lemonade Wars ( a clever book about selling and buying with marketing tips for making money at any business, definitions of business terms, charts, diagrams, and even math problems!) , the store is now amping up and will see costs rise. Today the children were told.
So, many took this weekly pirate money toss seriously! They get a one time and one time only addition to their loot to spend the same day... a fun way to sneak in some more basic math skills...
