Counting Coins and Made It!

Hi guys!

Have y'all heard about the new Texas math TEKS?! {my Texas friends out there!} They have added MONEY into the mix. Thank goodness! I've always taught money in the second semester to my Kinders, but now that it's going to be formally assessed.. it's time to step it up a notch! 

I've been working feverishly on getting Ella ready for Kindergarten {in just a little over a month! ahhhh!!} and she's loving having "mommy school"
I created this pack to prepare her AND to use with my kinders next year. I think I'm in love!

While we are focusing on money this summer- if you read my last Monday Made It post- I shared Ella's chore chart.
While we are introducing the concept of money and allowance, we're going to use these jars to work on the "give, save, live" model.This project was EASY peasy! Like, it took me much longer to purchase the materials than actually make the jars.

While I was at it with the chalk markers.. I made this to use for my kids' first day of school!
Isn't she adorable?!
Hop on over to Tara's blog to check out the rest of the Made Its for this week!
