This game will help reinforce your child's understanding of purchasing power. Your third-grader will begin to understand the value of money in his everyday life. At this age your child should begin to identify coin values and what those coins will buy.
Fill envelopes with a combination of coins (real or paper). Have your child add up the value of the coins in each envelope and write the amount in marker on the face of the envelope. Check to make sure she has the correct amount recorded. Then brainstorm together some items that could be purchased with that amount of money.
Put the amounts of money together or subtract them. Using newspaper ads or catalogs, continue your hunt for items to purchase.
