Pennies, pennies, pennies!
My 3- and 5-year-olds decided they wanted to learn about this thing called money that their oldest sister (12) earns each week (our family economy is a whole other homeschool post in itself!). So even though I wasn’t planning in-depth discussions on this topic now, they are curious so in we jump. I have a nice-sized Melissa and Doug set of money that the girls explored. The only piece we talked about today were the pennies – how to identify them, how much they are worth, counting them, etc. The little ones (even the baby) were very excited and didn’t want to put them away.
