Money, Money, Money!!!

We created an anchor chart of the coins we most use.

We also practiced coin/value identification by toss a bean bag onto a coin and naming it and its value.

We practiced counting and making specific amounts with coins. We also played lots of small group and partner games to practice coin/value identification, we added our favorites to a money math tub. During ?Think Math? we also brainstormed what coins we could use to make different amounts of money.


We researched the physical characteristics of ponds: landforms/bodies of water, weather, plant, and animal life. We worked on creating a mural of a pond all week. Then in the computer lab, we wrote about what we learned.
