Whether you are in kindergarten and 1st grade and teaching coins and number sense, or if you are in second grade and starting your money unit, this game can help.
The children race to the finish on a hundreds chart by rolling a die with coins on it. If the roll a penny, they move one space. If they roll a nickel, they move 5 spaces. You get the idea.
There are three dice to choose from. One has just pennies and dimes. The next has pennies, dimes, and nickels. The last has all the coins.
Build number sense, coin recognition, and begin the process of helping little ones count change in this fun game.
