Making Cents

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sherri has just lost her third jump rope to the chewing habits of her dog, Brownie. How is she going to get another one? Her Dad won't give her money to buy one, so she decides to EARN the money. Her job is made more difficult when Brownie gets involved. In addition to learning about money, students will learn about setting limits, saying "no" and what happens when you don't take care of your things.

 

 

This show is based on classroom curriculum standards. Basic math problems are presented within the situations depicted in the play. For example, a jump rope costs five dollars. How many times can you earn fifty cents before you can save five dollars?

 

EARNING money, SAVING money, as well as BORROWING and LENDING are concepts repeated throughout the program.
