Money games


This past week we started our money unit...WOW!
I have a few students that don't know any coin names or values... and...
a handful that can count coins up to $5.00!


Not that anyone cares what Lory thinks... but,
I think it is CRAZY that money is introduced and taught AND mastered in 2nd Grade.
We've made great progress... I taught the kids about "hair and legs" (I posted it here)
 to count groups of various coins.  The skip counting by five has been a 
tremendous help to many of my little ones.


 


We have used the game boards above along with the many




 We've read many books..
I'm so grateful for fun math literature to share with my kiddos.


Next week we add the bills...
