This activity is perfect as a center game or an early finisher. It is also a great way to integrate spelling and math concepts.
It can be used with ANY word list or word wall.
Students write the desired word, then add up the amounts for each coin to find a total value. This can be done by placing the coin poster in a sheet protector or SmartPal. The coin poster could also be posted or projected and students could complete their individual work on a white board or piece of paper.
Several different version are available to differentiate or to change out each week for new center work.
The Challenge Poster could be implemented for critical thinking.
