# Basic Money Practice Test for 1st Grade – [Easy]

Updated on September 26, 2023

Money. It’s something we use every day. Adults buy groceries with it, pay for gas, and purchase those sweet treats kids love. But when do we start teaching our children about this essential life tool? At Brighterly, we believe in starting early – right in the 1st grade!

## The Importance of Learning About Money in 1st Grade

It might seem premature, but introducing money concepts in 1st grade can be incredibly beneficial. Children at this age are like sponges. They’re naturally curious, eager to learn, and they love interactive activities. By providing them with engaging money lessons, you’re not just teaching them math; you’re laying the foundation for responsible financial habits in the future.

## Interactive Ways Brighterly Teaches Money

At Brighterly, we don’t believe in rote memorization. Instead, we incorporate:

- Visual aids: Like colorful pictures of coins and bills.
- Interactive games: Where kids can “shop” for toys and learn to make change.
- Hands-on activities: Like setting up a mini-store in class.

## Connecting Money with Math Skills

Money isn’t just about coins and notes. It’s about math. By the end of 1st grade, students at Brighterly can:

- Recognize and identify the value of coins and bills.
- Understand basic addition and subtraction with money.
- Make simple purchasing decisions using their math skills.

## Why Brighterly Stands Out in Money Education

With so many online resources available, why choose Brighterly for your 1st grader’s money education? Because we:

- Focus on practical application: It’s not just about knowing the value of coins; it’s about understanding their worth in the real world.
- Offer personalized learning paths: Every child is unique, so we customize our approach for each student.
- Are backed by expert educators: Our team is made up of passionate educators who ensure our curriculum is both fun and educational.
