money and measure go together
financing my future, making money

In the early years getting youngsters into understanding about money is not straight forward. I recall playing a monetary based game with a secondary class and at the end of the lesson one of the teaching assistants told me that for one of the girls that was the first time they had done any school work with money.

As adults we take the subject of finance for granted as it is so fundamental to our survival.

Where to start:

we can get children to recognise the different shapes and colours of coins and notes.

swapping items for play money. [playing shopkeepers]

making monetary values equal (two 1p coins = one 2p coin)

making up values (e.g. 7p) using different combinations of coins
