A yard sale is a wonderful learning opportunity. The kids learned about organization, cleaning out, helping others, hard work, manners, pricing, negotiating & giving. Another lesson was money. How to make change, how to be a good steward, denominations & how to calculate.
After the sale & clean up I called Elvis up to our room where I was counting the money. Working with money is his favorite in math. I had it split into different denomiations and had already counted it. He was given the job of counting it himself. I checked his calculations with mine to get the final tally. He did a terrific job! He got them all right the first time with the execption of one. And that one he got correct on the second count. Go Elvis!
