Authentic Teaching – Party Planning

Scan 8 (1)

A great authentic way for children to learn about budgeting – give them a budget for their birthday party or other special event.  It is truly amazing to watch what happens when children have a budget to work with.  Not only is this great math practice, but whining ends, creativity increases, and kids end up having pride and ownership over their own special day.  Win Win!
