Studies have shown that physical toys form the foundation of young children’s concepts of sharing, learning, and giving or spending. Money especially can become the basis of a child’s core sharing concepts. American researchers have found that “children often see adults exchange coins and bills when they buy things. As children grow and start to make choices, they learn that people, things, and money have value. These concepts form the foundation for understanding the importance of spending, sharing, and saving.
How to handle money and begin to make financial decisions are important life skills that can be taught as soon as children can count, along with the difference between a “want” and a “need.” Primary school aged-children often find coins especially helpful in developing these understandings. Having physical coins in your classroom for play can reinforce key developmental concepts as well as allow children to play and expand their imaginations through shopping or purchasing games.
Educational Colours advantage over other brands
Educational Colours offers high quality, life-like plastic coins modeled exactly like Australian coinage that help young children begin to understand the finances of money and business. Available in both individual bags and larger units more ideal for a classroom, Educational Colours coins are perfect for primary schoolers and early childhood classrooms alike.
The EC brand is dedicated to helping young learners develop sensory and motor skills in innovative and creative new ways. Their goal is to inspire and encourage creativity and learning in tomorrow’s generation both in the classroom and at home and every product goes through extensive on-site research and development testing to ensure that goal is met. Texture and sensory lines such as Magic Sand, modeling clay, and spaghetti string are especially important in meeting young learners’ developmental and creative needs.
Complete range of Educational Colours
All of the EC texture/sensory lines have been developed by EC to engage your child’s imagination while allowing them to feel and play with a variety of textures and colours. A variety of additional tools, such as texture wands, modeling sticks, and clay molds, allow children to truly engage with the materials and practice fine motor skills at the same time.
Primary school teachers will be especially delighted by the large variety of paints available. Not only does OfficeCorporate carry a large selection of EC paints in every color and texture, but every paint is washable and comes in 2 and 5 litre options with additional pumps that make the colours long-lasting and easily usable in a primary classroom. Educational Colours also offers a variety of specialty paints such as finger paint range, craft or fabric paint dye, glitter paint, fluorescent paint, and blackboard paint.
These allow teachers and students alike to think outside the box and add even more texture and whimsy into their projects and designs. Each product is nontoxic and developed with children in mind, so if paint finds its way onto clothes or skin, there’s no damage or issues caused. The EC Ingredient Information Guide provides details on each product and the breakdown of ingredients so you can be especially sure that they pose no harm to your classroom.
