I'm linking up with Jess over at I (HEART) Recess for her Mathematical Monday linky party.
The Common Core has very little money practice in the younger grades - yet by second and third grade students are expected to know how to solve problems using money! That's kind of hard to do when they haven't had experiences identifying coins, counting money and making change!
I try to connect money to what we're doing any time I can - counting days of school, lunch money, etc. And I sneak in some money centers and skills for our math time, too! Here's a fun freebie from my TpT store to help your kiddos practice counting groups of coins.
It is part of my bigger set of money Read-the-Room cards, which you can find HERE.
And, because I like incorporating technology into my day, here's a great activity from ABCya.com
There's also a multi-level Money BINGO game that's great practice, too. And if you're looking for the app for your ipads... here it is
