Smart is a poem by Shel Silverstein where a boy makes trades staring with a dollar and ending up with 5 cents. It is a cute poem that teaches the value of coins.
Once we practice reading, reciting, acting it out & completing a math worksheet we wrote letters to dad explaining and apologizing for trading away his $1.00 bill.
They then used an app called Puppet Pals where they made a puppet show & read their edited letter to dad.
It was also a way for me to have the children show their understanding about why dad was red in the face at the end.
