Kids are always excited about Christmas. I remember teaching in the classroom and it seemed that the students just couldn’t focus the whole month of December. The excitement of Christmas was too much for them to handle:) This year we are so excited about our Christmas learning!! There is a ton of learning going on at The Moffatt Girls house and we are really enjoying it!
We started out by putting all of our shopping items into our Christmas pocket chart. Then we matched up the amount of coins to the price tags on each toy. This was so much FUN!
After working with the hands-on money cards, I let Audrey do the independent activity to assess how much she really learned. She did very well! I think hands-on activities really help children grasp the concept that much more…especially for the kinesthetic and visual learners:)
