Good morning 😊
I accidentally posted last night what I meant to post today, but oh well no biggie.
Today I want to share how I will teach Chloe more about money this homeschool year. She knows all of the coins and what they are worth. Now I am going to teach her how to earn, spend and hopefully save some of her money.
Typically I believe every member of a family should help without expecting to be paid. I have tried to teach Chloe with workbooks and flashcards, but i decided learning in the real world is better. Chloe loves the Dollar Tree and I thought I would explain to her when she earns enough money she can go there and get a treat (suckers I’m sure😊). She will use the money she earned.
I have made a Chore Chart for her and have put not only household chores, but self help skills as well. I haven’t decided how much I will pay her per day, but I want to pay her in mixed coins, so she can learn to count different coins together. I am also making a separate mini chart of one extra chore, something she refuses to do, to earn a big reward. The biggest one is cleaning her toys off the floor. We will see how that goes🙄
If I can ever get pictures to load on here I will share pictures of her chart and how she is doing. I am starting this next week.
How do you teach your children about money? Let me know in the comments☺
