"Hannah found this money math guide last night which I was very impressed with! I thought it would make a welcomed addition to your page! This is it...

Can you add it to your page?:

I'd love to show Hannah and her troop leader if you include it! I think encouragement does wonders in kids and I know she'd get a kick out of it :)"
