Easily spent
Copper brown
and worth one cent.

Nickel, nickel,
Thick and fat,

Big and bold,
You're worth twenty-five

Papier-mâché piggy Bank


By Judith Viorst

Ages 4 to 8

Alexander Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday Activities
Need: play money, variety of price marked items,

Although Alexander and his money are quickly parted, he comes to realize all the things that can be done with a dollar.

After reading the story as a group list how Alexander's money was spent and how much each choice cost him. The children then need to calculate how much money Alexander spent and count out the amount he spent in play money.

The children will need 2 pieces of paper. Take one paper and cut a square. Glue down 3 sides of the square on the other paper to make a pocket.

Children then need to view the priced items in the room. On the paper with the pocket the children make a list of how they would spend a dollar, writing their choices on one side of the paper with what the item cost. They do not have to spend the whole dollar.

After completing their list of items they would buy. The children then count out enough paper money for each item on their list and place the paper money in the pocket on their paper.

Have children trade papers with each other and count the money in each other's pocket and add up the cost of items bought.
