Crew News September 21, 2011

We are learning all about coins in math. So far we have learned all about pennies and nickels. We will be learning about dimes and quarters in the future. We love to sort our coins, examine our coins and count our coins. We are learning to exchange 5 pennies for a nickel, to count combinations of pennies and nickels and what symbols are on each coin. Ask your child how to play penny-nickel exchange. To play this game you just need some pennies, some nickels and a die (singular of dice) from a board game. If you have a pile of coins or jar of loose change at your house, have your child sort them by coin type, examine them, count them or figure out how much money you have in the pile. They will love it.

We have library tomorrow. Please help your child remember to return their books so that they can check out new ones.
