Christmas is not the only time to remember others with a
greeting card. There are many other greetings that can be sent to those in a
hospital or extended care facility. Such as; Groundhog’s Day, Valentine’s
Day, St. Patrick’s Day, or to welcome Spring. Nothing like a card to
brighten up someone’s lonely day. A card or a visit from a friendly Tiger Cub
can help a lot.
*Make at least 2 cards or decorations and take them to a
hospital or nursing home. Be sure to call ahead to wherever you decide to go
to find out about visiting hours, and if they accept young visitors. Another
idea would be to add a hand made bookmark inside the greeting card.
Learning to count coins and to make change accurately
*Using an assortment of U.S. coins, choose the correct
coins to make the following purchases. There may be more than one way to
arrange the coins correctly.
If you paid one dollar for the following purchases, how
much change would you receive?
