A little book that's full of big fun for children as they learn about time and money!
Time and money are challenging, abstract concepts with concrete everyday importance. This makes them essential for children to master, and 3-6 year olds are beginning to get curious about what they mean. Using role-playing, games, songs, and dramatic play, 30 Fun Ways to Learn About Time and Money explores these difficult concepts through props, real-life scenarios, and imaginative play.
The activities also help children develop speaking and listening skills while building on relationships with peers and adults. These activities are practical, easy to do, and use readily-found materials.
Each activity includes:
- Materials list
- Vocabulary words
- Ideas for expanding the activity
- Learning goals
It can be a challenge to teach difficult concepts like time and money in the classroom setting, but the activities in this book will engage children's curiosity, develop understanding, and nurture imagination!
