Snow anyone?

Were you stuck in the snow storm yesterday.  I was.  Our buses were cancelled but we still had to report to school.  In the end one child showed up.  We did get to go home early but my normal 30 min drive took 2 hours.  I also got stuck at the end of our road and my hubby had to come a rescue me.

Can you see the boys sleds?  They will have to dig them out if they want to use them.

 I am so thankful for the neighbour who ploughed our driveway this morning.  I would have taken forever to do it by hand.

The snow is up to my knees at the end of the driveway.

 I noticed little bird tracks in the snow.  So cute.

Bye bye penny

On Monday Canada started the process of getting rid of the penny.  Stores no longer give or take them during cash transactions.  The bill will either be rounded up or down depending on the amount.  What does this mean for us teaching money in the class?  I'm not sure.  For now, it is still part of our curriculum and I think it will take awhile of them to disappear, so I will still continue to teach the penny.  Next year, I'm not sure.  How does this affect our teens with disabilities trying to learn skills for independent living?  It's hard enough to teach money but to then teach that the total will be rounded up or down is going to be really confusing. Will stores change their prices so the total will be a 5 or 10?  It will be interesting to see how it will all work out as we move forward.
