Do you wash dishes? What do you do with the income once you have it? Do you spend it all immediately? Do you spend some and save some?
 You will learn how you can earn income. On each math question you get right, on your own, on the daily math practice you will earn a penny. For each word problem you get right, on your own you will receive a nickel. At the end of the week, when we tally our daily progress record, you will be given the money you earn, play money, and put it in you piggy banks.
