Product Description
Click the PREVIEW to see samples.

"Trim the Tree" is a quick, easy and fun craftivity game to help reinforce coins (penny, nickel, dime & quarter).

Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board too. Caption: "Cent-sational Math Work"

Run the tree template off on green construction paper, or use white and have students color.

Children pick a partner and take turns rolling the dice four times.

Their 1st roll equals how many penny ornaments they will glue to their tree, the 2nd roll is for nickels and so on.

Students color, cut and glue the matching number of coins to their tree.
This way, each tree will be trimmed differently.

After they are done “decorating” their tree, older students complete their math worksheet by adding up the total value of their tree, writing that on the star or trunk.

I’ve also provided a worksheet where students break down the total of each coin.

For more advanced math practice, have everyone share their total, write them on the board, and figure out how much all of the trees are worth.

I’ve also included several worksheet options for different levels of study, including one that reinforces color words.

The photographs of completed samples help clarify things.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your kiddos enjoy making a money tree.

My Christmas “Cookie Dough” emergent reader packet, also practices coins, and would go great with this activity.
