This JAM PACKED file will help your introduce or review the following money related skills:
*Identifying coins and their values
*Showing an amount in more than one way
*Exchanging coins to show a more efficient way
*Adding together values to determine a total amount
Students will interact with posters that include catchy poems, they will play games, cut and paste, and complete a brag book to take home and share with their family!
1. What's Your Word Worth: integrates math with literacy skills. Students build words and using a ABC menu they add up the total amount of their word. Then they use their knowledge of greater, least, and equal to to further identify words.
2. Money match up: identify penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and half dollar names, amounts, front and back using cards. This activity can be played as a game or used as an assessment tool, too!
3. Change Exchange: look for more efficient ways to make an identified amount of coins. I always say "would you rather walk around with 25 pennies in your pocket or a quarter?!" This game helps reinforce exchanging for efficiency.
4. Roll A Dollar: A favorite in my classroom! Practice adding on dice then that amount becomes total coin values... keep rolling and adding until you reach one dollar. Students also practice exchanging coins as they get closer to a dollar to show the most efficient way of their total amount for that round. You could turn this into a challenge by adding three dice... or have students start with a dollar and Unroll a dollar... subtract the amount shown on the dice.
5. Snappy Shopper: Follow the cards (easy, medium, harder) to determine total amount spent then the change they will receive for paying for the items shown with a dollar.
6. My Money is in Order: Cut and paste worksheets/morning work to first determine total amount shown on each money card then glue those cards in order from least to greatest. Three different worksheets are included.
7. I know a lot about money individual student booklet or Brag Book! This brag book is the perfect way for students to show off what they have been practicing at school in relation to money skills! I always have my students create their own coin identification posters to go home as well... teach families the poems too!
