This packet allows your students to practice counting different combinations of coins to find a total amount. It also allows students to determine which combinations would be needed to purchase an item (item with a price tag). There are three different sets (above level, on level, and below level). The focus is on counting coins, so the total amounts, on average, do not go over $1.00. For the above level and on level sets, the students are expected to write in both cents notation and dollars-and-cents notation.
These activities may be used in small groups or for centers.
