Gretchen Schock shares her love of recipes, crafts and frugal living. She also speaks very opening about the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum. After a breast cancer scare in 2012, she decided to say goodbye to her nightly glasses of Chardonnay. It was time to get sober and live life with eyes wide open! The CocktailMom name remains, however with a new focus on healthy and authentic living.

Learning How to Make Change with Money

I love all the wonderful resources on TeachersPayTeachers. Recently I received the Piggy Race Game, and knew it would be a perfect game to play during spring break.

Directions: Spin to see how many spaces to move. Show the value on your space with coins. If you show the correct value, you get to stay on that space. If you don't show the correct value, you have to move back the number of spaces you spanned. The first player to land on finish and show the value correctly, wins!

The boys enjoyed counting out the money, I don't think they even realized they were learning! I added an extra challenge that they could not repeat the same coins if they landed on the same spot, which happened a few times. Take a look at Teachers Pay Teachers, there is bound to be something that your children will enjoy.
