If you’re studying about coins
, I think your kiddos will really enjoy “Christmas Cookie Dough
The packet includes an emergent reader
I’ve included several options
for you to choose from, including 2 sizes
The first one is a “cut & glue”
the appropriate coin to the page, the other version already features a picture of the coin.
the simple sentences, filled with 20 Dolch sight words
. I’ve switched up the pronouns
for that teachable moment as well.
They trace & write
the coin words, as well as the values
, and color words
, then color the cookies accordingly.
I’ve also included a “Sum Cookies” craftivity
, which makes an awesome interactive bulletin board
, or wall display.
Children choose which cookies they want, then color, cut and arrange them on their aluminum foil “cookie sheet”. When they are satisfied with how things look, they glue their cookies down.
Using the “cookie key” or referring to the pocket chart cards, students figure out the price
of all of the cookies on their cookie sheet, writing an equation
showing the price of each cookie, then adding
to solve the problem.
I’ve included a spatula to show their work, which is attached to their cookie sheet.
When everyone is done, collect and number the cookie sheets, then display them, along with the spatula answers.
For more math practice
have children figure out how much the various sheets of cookies cost, writing their equations and solutions on the worksheet
Students can do one a day, or however many you want them to do. They check their work, by flipping up the spatula flap.
Finally, there’s a cookie matching game
. Depending on ability, students simply match a cookie to a cookie.
Older kiddos can match a cookie with its value, to the matching coin card, and/or the coin word card.
There’s also a certificate of praise
as well: “When it comes to coins, you’re one smart cookie!”
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students find studying coins with Christmas Cookie Dough, especially fun.
