Check Out These Checkbooks: Real-Life Banking for the Classroom

Abby Tuch 

March 1999, Volume 5, Issue 7, Page 422

Abstract:
This program stresses the mathematics skills of banking, problem solving, place value, and multidigit addition and subtraction with and without regrouping. It also stresses neatness, positive behavior, and responsibility, along with skills that relate to other curriculum areas, such as knowing one's own address, signing one's name in cursive, using correct capitalization, and knowing how to spell number words. The children enjoy the program because it imitates real life.
