In The Works: US Money Bundle – Can you help?

Hey everyone!

In June I released our Ultimate Spelling Curriculum.  And then I asked you what we should focus on for July.  The resounding vote was for … US Money!

So right now, I’m working hard on a bundle of resources that will take your child from introduction to mastery of US Money and how to use it.

I want to make sure I don’t miss any skills that YOU want your children to have.  Keep in mind, this bundle is not meant to be a financial literacy unit.  It’s meant to introduce children to currency and how to use it.

Ready to help?

Below I am sharing with you my ‘proposed scope’ for this bundle. In true Little Learning Lovies style, these topics will be presented in the bundle in some really fun, interesting, and unique ways – but my question for you is: What would you ADD to this scope?   Is there anything I’m missing here?

You can help this bundle be EPICALLY useful just by sharing what I missed in the comments.  Keep in mind- This bundle will be meant for kids in K through about the 5th or 6th grade.  So don’t be afraid to add something basic or something advanced. My goal is for someone to be able to buy this bundle when their child is little and keep using parts of it throughout their elementary career.  🙂

Another Gift For You!

I think children should learn how to take care of a checkbook and checkbook record. I also think they need to know about saving and how to keep up with what is in their savings account. The last think is the dangers of credit cards and the do’s and dont’s of credit cards.

How about including multiplication and division components? Such as if I had 5 quarters…could “add” to get 1.25 or could multiply 5×25 cents to get $1.25. Or If we had three children to buy a $1.50 ice cream from the ice cream truck, how much money would we need to give the person?…or if we paid $4.50 to the ice cream truck driver, and 3 children received the same pop cycle, how much was each pop cycle?
