How to Make Change
While teaching your child to count up to make change, there's no need to figure out first what the total owed back is. Your child can begin putting the change together immediately, shortening the time a customer has to wait for the money. Here is a tip you can follow, rather than focusing on the amount that needs to be returned, simply count up from the amount spent to the given. For instance, suppose a customer spends $6.54 out of $10. Ask your child to count '$6.55 then $6.56, $6.75, 7 8 9 and $10'. The money involved would be a dime, quarter, and three $1 bills.
