Four coin recognition task cards that creatively require students to add the monetary values together to purchase a toy. Each card integrates many important math Common Core Standards. The cards are based on second grade Common Core Standards but would also be great for an enrichment activity in lower grades. Fun math test review item as well!
The cards invite critical thinking due to the fact that coins are not visible to students. They are given a price and blank circles that they must add together to form that amount. Students will realize that the circle sizes and order correspond to their set values. Kids LOVE the experience of toy shopping and using money to purchase them- these cards are no exception!
