I pick two items to buy at a time.
I am... hmm what am I doing?... Oh yes, I am writing down the prices on my receipt. Then I have to add up the two prices to find the total. I am using real money to find the total.
I am soooo excited that I got the answer right!
Mom has to steal most of our stuff because she has to cook with them. And she doesn't even let us buy them back. I like shopping at Roll's Food!
~Mom here... Saxon, our Math curriculum, has us doing a lot of hands on activities. I think it's great for these early ages. It sometimes takes more prep time and sometimes takes over part of the dining room for a month or more, but it's worth it. When you see your 6 (now 7) year gaining an understanding of place value and adding money and having fun... it's worth it. ~
(and if you find a real store where the products are all under 42 cents - LET ME KNOW!)
