As a former Pre-Kindergarten teacher and now stay-at-home mommy of 2 boys and a sweet baby girl, many people ask me how they can be implementing educational concepts in the lives of their young children at home before they enter school. Instead of trying to come up with a quick list of ideas off the top of my head to answer these questions, I have decided to put all of my lessons into this blog. I, along with so many other parents, want to be purposeful at home with my children and make the most of the time I have with them.
I hope that this blog can help, encourage, and inspire you to work with your kiddos and
get involved in the learning process! The benefits will be endless,
and the moments you share together will be priceless! As Dr. Seuss once said,
"The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!"

Mighty Math Monday: Coin Graphing

* To identify types of coins
* To sort coins into appropriate categories
* To count each group of coins and graph the number for each category
* To use graphing skills to determine most and least

* Printable Graph from Keen on Kindergarten
* Handful of coins
* Crayons

* Have your children sort the coins into groups of the same type.

* Let them count the coins in each group and graph the correct number on their paper.

* Ask your child to determine which group had the most and the least.

* Extension: Have your child add up the monetary amount for each group.  Then they could add all groups together to get the total amount for all of the coins.
