Maddie is learning about counting by 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. In keeping with Saxon's program, we made a little grocery store where she could buy all kinds of goodies. Like sardines. Here's our little set-up.
Maddie and Eva practiced writing their numbers by making tags. The prices aren't exactly realistic, but we only had so many dimes and pennies! I *wish* I could get cake mix for 23 cents!
Maddie is quickly getting the concept of dimes being 10 cents, pennies being 1 cent, etc. Making it into a game really helped get her focused on the lesson.
