Money Man

We are learning about money in my 4K class.

I introduced the penny yesterday during circle time.

Me: Boys and girls, this is a penny.  A penny is a coin that is worth 1 cent.  It has two sides.  On one side, there is a man’s head.  Do you think you know who the man is?

(I fully expected crickets to chirp)

Little boy: MICHAEL JACKSON!!!

Me: ummm…no….

    How come he isn’t on your money anyhow?

    we have to have the queen on ours. I’m thinking we should switch it to Simon Cowell, he’s surely our most famous brit now.
