Real World Math Applications
If you are looking for another way to teach your child math skills, have them participate in a fundraiser. This is because fundraising is centered around numbers. From the time you set your initial goal at the time you count your last dollar, there are all kinds of math applications that needs to be done. If you want your child to get practice handling and counting money, fundraisers are a great way for them to do that.
Children need to be taught the value of a dollar. Most young children do not have the slightest clue of how money works in the real world. If you want your child to develop some entrepreneurial skills at a young age, get them involved in a fundraiser. They hopefully learn the importance of budgeting and providing quality customer service. Hopefully, your child is successful in their fundraising efforts. However, even if they are not they probably still learned a ton even if they realize it or not. It is never too early for you as a parent to introduce business skills into your child’s life. It will only benefit them as they grow older.
The most successful fundraisers have strong teams behind them. If you want your child to learn to appreciate the importance of teamwork, sign them up for a group fundraiser. They should see firsthand how working together is beneficial in the real world.
