Mrs. van Rees thought up the idea to create a store. We found items in the class and put different price tags on them. Then we pretended to be the store owner and the shoppers. It was a lot of fun buying and selling different items, but we also doing MATH at the same time!
Today we created "receipts" of the items we bought. Mrs. van Rees was the store owner and we had to give her the money. Once we paid, we filled in a sheet that was like a receipt to show how much we paid and how we paid it. Playing store and using money has been a great way to understand money and having fun while doing it!
