Race-to-50-or-100 0

St. Patrick’s Day Preschool Math Game

I made these game boards for ED.  It’s a race to 50 (or a race to 100). Print out one game board for each player.  The players take turns rolling the die (use a 20-sided die in the race to 100) and covering the squares on their game board with tokens. The first to cover their entire game board wins the game. You can download these free: St Patricks Day...

Money $$ Allowance, Family Money, Saving and More

Hubby and I felt we’ve really not done a very good job on teaching the kids about money, saving and finances.  We definitely want the kids to have more responsibility and practice with money while they are young… saving for trips (to have spending money) and spending their money wisely. This week,...

I also went over some of the rules of capitalization and had the kids give examples (of a city, state, the name of a lake, and so forth). Although I don’t show...
