This is a set of 24 task cards. Students find the total of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters, record their answers, then check them by scanning the QR code.
My students are crazy about QR codes. I find that the centers with this option are among the most in demand and the first to be finished. If you've never used them give them a try. I think you'll love them. QR code reader apps can be installed on any handheld classroom device (I use my old ipod and android phone that has the SIM card removed).
I have included pennies in this set even though pennies are no longer being produced in Canada. Adding by 10's or 5's then counting on by 1's is an important skill for kids to know, and this is the perfect way to practice it.
These cards can also be used for other activities in the classroom including:
