Why Can't I Have Everything? Teaching Today's Children to Be Financially and Mathematically Savvy
Crawford, Jane
Math Solutions
Do you want your children to be financially and mathematically savvy? This resource for grades preK-2 is a must-have for parents and teachers. It provides more than forty activity-rich lessons to help children be financially and mathematically savvy at a young age. The activities embrace the following questions: (1) What is money?; (2) Where do we get our money?; (3) Do we have enough money?; (4) Why can't we have everything?; (5) How do we earn money?; (6) Should we spend, save, or share?; and (7) Where do we keep our money? Great literature--from "Where the Sidewalk Ends to Pennies for Elephants"--is used to situate these seven economic themes in a context that helps young learners make sense of these abstract ideas. Parents will find tailored suggestions at the end of each lesson; teachers will find reproducible letters for parents to go with each lesson. In addition, the lessons include formative assessment ideas, suggestions for differentiating instruction, and correlations to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
