New Video on Building Children’s Background Knowledge: Using Money in Dramatic Play

Children use paper, markers, and scissors to create money.

In this new video in the Teaching Strategies series, preschool teacher Karla Alamo describes how she helped children develop an understanding of money to enhance their experience in the new dramatic play center. By allowing them to explore real money and supporting them in creating play money, Karla ensured that children had the background knowledge needed to fully participate in the classroom’s grocery store.
