This engaging task-card set has 24 single-step word problems involving money. Perfect for 2nd graders who are struggling to grasp the concept of counting coins! Common core aligned: CC.2.MD.8: Solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and ¢ symbols appropriately.
There are 2 sets of task cards – one with pictures of US currency on each card, and one set with no pictures, for those of you that are not in the United States (or if you don’t have access to a color printer, you can print the blank ones and put coin stickers or stamps on each card.)
What’s in the packet:
(download the preview for a better look at everything!)
12 easy, single step task cards with story problems totaling under 1 dollar (cards #1 – 12).
6 cards with pictures of coins asking students to identity the total amount of the coin set (cards #13 – 18) * Please note, these cards display U.S. currency in both the color and black and white versions.
6 task cards with amounts slightly higher than one dollar (but still easy, single step problems; cards# 19 – 24).
Work through a few problems together at the end of the day, or put them in a center for fast finishers to work on independently.
