This unit has 15 days worth of teaching, practicing, creating, working with, assessing, writing about, identifying, adding & subtracting money! This unit is geared to 2nd grade. These are the plans I used in my 2nd grade class room that had GREAT results! Check out the standards below.
Each Day has class-wide engagement, questioning, a cooperative learning opportunity, and a practice for the given lesson! Each day scaffolds on the last, making understanding easier on the students.
This is noooooo prep. Everything you need is here. All you do is print, cut (when needed), teach, and watch your kids soar!
