ED has been working on coins for math. To be honest, sometimes things just don’t get accomplished unless I’ve taken some time before-hand to get things ready. Here are some activities I got together for her.
I grabbed our coin bowl and made pre-made ziploc bags of coins for her to match. There is one extra card for each packet. I placed five small ziploc bags with pre-counted amounts of coins and index cards with various values in the bags.
We also have a couple of activities I pulled off the web. We’re using these with a simple spinner. I’ve had them for a couple of years, so unfortunately I can’t share the link for the 4 in row cards, but I got the pig printable over at Oceans of First Grade Fun. She has directions for a different game/activity she did with those pigs called Bank on It. The spinner is from What the Teacher Wants.
I also made ED a couple of math chain activities… One was just to match and staple the quarters and their values:
- Minecraft Money Game
- Addition Games; Place Value Activities
- Free Montessori Style Addition Pages with Regrouping
- Telling Time Practice Sheets — Kitty Clocks
