My friend Pat posted on her blog http://pearlcabin.blogspot.com/ about making flash cards to teach her grandson how to identify money. Wow I thought that was a great idea, so I borrowed her idea and expanded on it. Our grandsons were born on the same day, my grandson is a year older, so I thought he needed to also learn how different pieces of money equaled other pieces of money.
After I did the basic cards, I glued money on the following cards too.
I think this is something all children should learn, because you can go to any fast food place and you will find a cashier that does not know how to give change with out the computerized cash register telling them the amount.
