Make math fun again!! This pack includes 7 hands-on centers and activities for practicing counting money. These centers align to the 2nd grade common core standard 2.MD.C8. There is a cover page for each activity that includes directions and whether or not the activity has answers that exceed $1.00. The level of difficulty ranges with each activity to reach and challenge all learners. The best thing about these activities is that they can be used in centers, or 1 at a time in a whole group setting (just make extra copies).
What you'll get:
Write the Room- Students read word problems or see a group of coins and must count and record the total value.
Line 'em Up!- Students total up a group of coins on 4 different cards and them sequence them from smallest value to largest value. They record it on a worksheet, and then they repeat with another set of 4 cards.
Show Me the Money!- Students get cards with an amount on it and they must use coins to build that amount and record it on an accompanying worksheet.
Right on the Money- Students are given cards with a group of coins on them. They count up the value, and determine whether or not they could show the same value with less coins. Accompanying worksheet.
More Money, More Problems- Students are given cards with story problems on them to solve. Accompanying worksheet.
Super Shoppers-Students are given cards with items and prices on them. Students use accompanying worksheet to answer questions.
Coin Collecting: Stamp it- This activity is a booklet with different values at the top of each page. Students have to show two different ways to show the same value. You do not need money stampers for this one, you can simply have them sketch the coins.
