OH MY!

 

Can I just say it took me about 2 minutes to figure out that you are from Australia. :lol:

 

I went from concern to, "huh, about 1/5 of a gumball if she's thinking about what it will buy but how is that mathematical?" back to concern...

LOL.

 

Here he can memorize the poems we use with our children. :lol::lol:

 

Penny, Penny

Easily spent

Copper, brown

And worth one cent.

 

Nickel, Nickel

Thick and fat

You’re worth five cents,

I know that.

 

Dime, Dime,

Little and thin

I remember

You’re worth ten.

 

Quarter, Quarter

Big and Bold

You’re worth 25,

I’m told.

Or, you can sing:

A penny's worth one cent, a penny's worth one cent, (hold up 1 finger)

A nickel's worth five, a nickel's worth five; (hold up 5)

A dime is worth ten cents, a dime is worth ten cents, (hold up 10 fingers)

A quarter's twenty-five, a quarter's twenty-five. (quickly try to make 25 fingers - 10, 10, and 5 before you finish the line!)
