These centers have been tried and tested in a Grade 1 classroom. I used them during my unit on money.
There are 5 centers: Shop and Paste, Coin Stamping, For Sale, Piggy Pennies, What to Buy
This package also includes a test (could be used as a pre-test) and a grid to relate test questions to math centers. This enables the teacher to identify weak areas for further instruction and practise.
Finally, a smartboard file including clipart from the worksheets has been included for you to edit and change as fits your class.
All centers are provided in both pdf and .doc file format.
Details about Centers:
-Shop and Paste- students paste pictures of items and coins to match their price tag
-Coin Stamping- students write the name of coins and stamp their picture, they also stamp the coins to match the cost
-For Sale- Students circle coins to represent the cost of items. They also choose 2 items and add their value
-Piggy Pennies- students roll the dice and place pennies on 10 x's. They keep rolling trying to cover all 10 x's.
-What to buy- students choose 2 items that total less than 10 cents. They show their thinking in pictures, numbers and words.
