Our children have never “owned” anything so learning to take care of their school supplies has been a challenge. Recently we opened a “store.” Each school term the children receive “fake” money, with which they are now responsible for “buying” their school supplies, socks, used clothes, etc.
The teachers have been so excited by their response. Where children used to leave notebooks and pens all over the compound, now they take good care of them. When asked to “double space” a school assignment, they reply, “paper is expensive, I want to single space.” Everything can be a learning opportunity.
You can provide school supplies for $30.
