Product Description
These coin “Popsicle stick puppet paddles” are a quick, easy and fun way to practice coin identification, as well as whole-group assess.

Students need just two Popsicle sticks, as they glue the penny & nickel back-to-back, and the dime and quarter back-to-back.

Since size is one of the ways my kiddos differentiate the coins, I designed the coins on a background circle.

Children color, cut and glue to the top of two different colored Popsicle sticks.
I’ve included small, medium, and large pattern choices.

They can simply write the names of the coins right on the sticks using a marker, or have them trace, trim and glue the labels.

Teacher reads clues from the poster.
Kiddos hold up their coin “puppet paddle” when they know which coin is being described.

You can see at a glance who is having difficulty.

Besides reading the clues, you can also say: “Show me the penny!” “Show me the nickel...”

We keep our sticks in our cubbies, so that I can review and whole-group assess throughout the month.

For a realistic visual, I put real coins on my sticks.

This game provides an interesting and appropriate activity for Presidents' Day too.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping that this “Show me the money!” craftivity, is just the thing that turns on those light bulbs of recognition.
