"Show me the money!" The theme this week in kindergarten was all about money as we revisited our discussions about the penny, nickel, dime and quarter during our math workshop. The children worked together and turned their dramatic play area into a supermarket using their cash registers and play money. They took turns sorting coins and learned what it means to exchange money for goods and how much each coin represents. We then played the coin game to reinforce their knowledge and understanding of the value of the coins; children roll the money dice and draw coins, and then have fun adding up the sums of their money. Next week we plan to participate in more fun money-themed activities.
