Lorelai can add coins. For years I have given one of my children my change from purchases and ask them to tell me the amount. If one gives the correct answer then, he/she gets to keep the money. Jame has finally given the correct answer without help from her sister or brother. On Friday, she was given a nickel and three pennies. While she did call the nickel “a quarter”, she assigned a value of five and a value of one to each of the pennies. She then used her fingers to count. She is eight cents richer.
