Show me the Money!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

We are learning how to add and subtract with money this week. Today, we played "restaurant" and the kids took turns being "customer" and "waiter." They first had to withdraw money from the bank. This was the amount they were able to spend at the restaurant. They had to order from the menu with their given amount of money and record each item, what it cost, and subtract it from their total amount. The waiter had a ticket book and used that to record what they wanted to order. They had to add up all items and give the customer their "ticket" with the total amout when they were done adding up all the items. Money was exchanged, change was given, and the kids all said they were full when they were done! I love the imagination of 2nd graders!
