Teacher:
Right and tell me about your second activity. What did you do that was different there Jackie?
Child:
The second activity we wrote what we thought or reckoned a Year 4 kid needed or what they wanted.
We looked through catalogues and found some stuff like a bag, textas, homework book, pens, art sets and that sort of stuff.
Wrote down the money and take away from $40 and that's what it equals, there, there, there and there and that's how much money we had left $15 and 10c.
Teacher:
And with that change what did you decide to do?
Child:
We take away $6 from that and we'll buy a library bag from the school like this one.
