But more important than the money we made was the experience...
Yesterday, the sale was happening during part of our physical therapy time, so we quick made some small signs and had kids do real-time advertising while walking in pacers and riding bikes through the halls!
Some of the spread - we went with a St. Patrick's Day theme, of course! Shamrock sugar cookies, rainbow cupcakes, green Rice Krispies treats, Lucky Charms treats, etc...
"Fifty cents, please!"
Fun stuff! In our unit we have also been identifying and sorting coins, figuring out if we have enough money to pay for something, talking about the difference between things we need to buy and things we merely want...We have been watching and singing along to these two videos to help us learn the coins.

This youtube user, HarryKindergarten, has a lot of fun, concept-supporting videos, some with original songs and some with commercial songs. It's a great resource!
