This PowerPoint slideshow will help your students to count coins: quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies. It is fully-animated. Just click and go. It runs itself. Five minutes long. Students have five seconds to solve a problem, and then the answer pops up. Immediate feedback! 30 problems with two or three coins.
Use this five-minute slideshow for a warm-up before a whole-class lesson. Or, use it at the end so that you can do “teacher stuff” while your students solve 30 problems. Or, you can place it on student-computers for independent practice as a Math Center.
Take a look at the Preview to see some of the slides in this slideshow.
