  4. 4. IXL Penny Game US Mint Pocket Change Game Money Activities Teaching Kindergarteners about money and money management is an important part of a Life Skills Unit. When you teach children about money, you provide opportunities for them to practice counting, to work with the terms more than and less than and to increase their ability to understand other mathematical concepts such as fractions and decimals in later grades. The value of money must be taught as a "perception" to Kindergartners. They must "perceive" the value of each individual coin. This is really quite simple even though it works counter intuitive to what we know to be true. These fun, interactive activities help the children visualize the coins and think about the fact that they have value. Sesame Money Game
  5. 5. Patterns Game PBS Pattern Game Pattern Activities There are many opportunities throughout the day for teaching patterns in kindergarten. Children learn to recognize, create, copy and extend patterns through repeated daily activities. Integrating five minute patterning activities into a daily schedule is not only fun for the children, but also helps them to be aware of patterns in their daily surroundings. In a Life Skills Unit, patterning can help with teaching about memorizing of important facts, such as phone numbers and directions, or even dressing yourself. Pattern recognition is very important to teach at a young age.

A regular intake of food is needed throughout the day to help keep children active and able to concentrate while learning. Offer regular meals and snacks, and allow your child to eat according to appetite without force or arguments.
