Greetings TpT Phrens,
Yeah, I know I dropped a massive number of coin activities a few weeks back, and you’re probably wondering, why am I doing this again? Well, because a teacher at my school was using these pocket activities at school and they were old and ragged, so I decided to clean them up and add a few twists to them. Here be the twists:
Coin Variety: I think it panders to kids to just see one type of coin. There are lots of different types of quarters, nickels and pennies, so I decided to add them in.
Coin Side: I decided to also include both heads and tails of the coins, and again, I also used a variety of tails (although I didn’t want to use all 50+ different tails that you find on the quarters. That’s just too much work.....)
Rotation of Coins: All those other activities that you see around use coins that always face exactly the same way. I made sure they were more reflective of how coins actually are seen: in a variety of rotations.
You’ll also notice that writing down how many coins should go in the pocket, I decided to just use circles to indicate how many coins should be used. That way students can place the coins inside the circles, check to see if it is correct, and then modify it if they need to.
So that’s it! Enjoy....
