Activities in this bundle:
Coin Eggs—The directions for creating your own coin eggs set are included. Creating this activity will require plastic coins, plastic eggs and an egg carton. A recording sheet and answer key matching the eggs I created is included.
Coin Spin—These labels are set up to print on CD/DVD labels, Avery template 8692; when you print them they will print two copies of each label on a page, I put one label on each side of the cd so I can see what was spun from the back as well. I use these particular labels to help the students practice their coin identification and adding skills. Directions for two of our favorite games (Make a Dollar and Spin Your Wheels) are included in the bundle. Directions for creating your own CD spinners are available in my shop: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/CD-Spinner-Directions-1846758
USA Coin Jeopardy—My students love to play Jeopardy, especially now that we have an interactive white board and they can do all the "clicking" themselves! I created this version to help my newly arrived ESL students practice money skills. United States' coins are confusing to many from other countries because they don't follow the typical pattern of the bigger the coin, the more it is worth. There are two rounds and a final Jeopardy question in this game. The first round focuses on identification of coins by name and value. The second round focuses on adding coins and figuring out how many it takes to create a certain amount. There is also a "Name That Country" category in which students must identify the country for the currency shown (I used my students' home countries, our neighbors to the north and south, and Australia because I used to live there). The students particularly like this section because it brings all of our homes together.
Coin Puzzles— These six piece puzzles create each coin. The pieces include the front of the coin/bill, back of the coin/bill, the name, value in words, value in numbers, and the number it takes to make a dollar. There are 6 puzzles in all: penny, nickel, dime, quarter, half dollar, dollar bill. A recording sheet and cut & paste (for the front and back of each) is included along with an answer key.
Clip Cards—These 16 cards have the four main coins along the edges and an amount in the center. I place the cards in a pile in the math center along with a big basket of clothes pins. The students look at the value in the center and place clothes pins on the various coins in order to make the correct total.
Match Up Cards—These cards are designed to go with the match up boards (directions for making your own in my shop: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Match-Up-Board-Plans-1846786) my dad designed and made for me. The card is printed and cut on the marks. I then slide it into the board and the students use rubber bands to match the terms on the left with the picture / value on the other side. The first card matches the name with the front and back of each coin/bill (penny, nickel, dime, quarter, half dollar, dollar bill). The second card matches the name with the value and number needed to make a dollar. If you print the cards double-sided (pg. 2 & 3, pg. 4 &5) the center becomes an answer key—just slide it out, turn it over and slide it back in.
Hungry Piggy Banks—This is a fun matching game. There are 18 coin purses with coins on them and 18 piggy banks with values written on them. In order to give each pig the correct amount of food students must add up the coins in the purse and match it to the pig with the correct value on its stomach.
