Research has shown that repetition is essential for the brain to learn and recall information. The engaging activities in this book will provide your child with repeated practice of grade-level-appropriate vocabulary and math skills about money. This kind of practice helps develop fluency and build a strong foundation in mathematical thinking and reasoning, an important skill for academic success. Teaching children about money involves teaching what money is, the denominations of currency, how to count money, why money is important, and how money is used in everyday life. Teaching children the denominations of coins and bills leads naturally to counting exercises. After children can add and subtract the value of coins and bills, they can learn about saving money and using money to make purchases.
Whether students need extra practice with grade-level skills or a head start on next year, Stick Kids Workbooks offer engaging activities, games, and puzzles that help make learning lots of fun. Each 56-page book features full-color activities, a list of the skills, and an explanation of why those skills are important for development. Also included are helpful tips, an answer key, a handy tracking sheet, and appearances by the lovable Stick Kids!
