Math at 7 Eleven

We live about a block away from a 7-Eleven.  The kids and I decided to get out of the house and go there for a quick money lesson.  I gave the kids each two dollars and told them to spend it on whatever they wanted.  It was fun to watch them add up and count their money over and over, to make sure they could get the most they could for their money.  Here is a look.

Isaiah counted his money and was ready to go!

Her eyes lit up and she told me, "I never thought we'd get to do something this great!"

We talked a lot about numbers, tax, rounding numbers, counting, etc.

Isaiah made his selection and was all smiles.

Yum!
