Teaching Money Concepts: Are We Shortchanging Our Kids?
Tracy, Dyanne M.; Fanelli, Beverly H.
Most primary teachers struggle to convey the proper values of coins with ineffective instructional materials. This study aimed to create a more developmentally appropriate money model for students in grades K-3. Instruction included concrete and visual money models. The paper also presents a proportional model of money and creates a visual representation of coin equivalents to address the frustrations of both students and teachers. Implications for teachers and suggestions for classroom activities are discussed. (ASK)
