Do you have students who have difficulty identifying coins, remembering the value of coins, or counting sets of coins? This unique multi-sensory activity pairs coins with base-ten blocks and dollar bills with a hundreds grid to help students visualize the value of coins and learn skip-counting patterns required for counting coins. The "Counting Coins Made Easy" Activity Packet engages students with visual, auditory, and kinesthetic activities that include games, songs, and chants. Games can be differentiated according to students' ability and specific need by using a variety of spinners and game boards (grids). This permits students of different abilities to play together during learning center activities. The manipulative tools can also be used by individual students to help them solve coin problems on worksheets and in math workbooks.
