This is an activity that students can do using their weekly vocabulary or spelling words. There is a key that has an assigned coin and value to each letter of the alphabet. Then, on the attached sheet, students are to find the "worth" of each of their spelling/vocabulary words. Included in the file are the directions for the activity along with examples, as well as an extension activity that asks students to first find words within their spelling/vocabulary words and find the total value of those as well. Good spelling and money practice.
*I am using this activity as party of the "Word Work" center in the Daily 5 Literacy Program.
