Plastic Coins 100 Pennies
About this deal
Color by Coin– similar to the Hidden Picture, your students will use the color code to complete the picture Let’s wrap up all of these money skills into a project, shall we? Remember the whole group store activity I talked about in #7? What if you put the power of buying and selling in the hands of your students? This is by far the coolest money activity we do in my class all year! Your students will create their own classroom economy. Can your partner guess the riddle? One classmate selects a card from the pile. As the other listens to the riddle, they will use plastic coins to see if they can solve their partner’s riddle. Once they have, that student will draw the coins needed on the recording sheet and the two partners switch roles. 14. Money Game 5 in a Row
LEARNING ADVANTAGE Play Pennies - Set of 100 Plastic Coins
Let’s take things up a notch by teaching our students how to add together different coins with different values. They now have a firm understanding of the basics (coin identification and value for each). This is a great way to practice the counting on strategy, as your students have to hold a coin value in their heads and then add more to it. You can work on this skill in a variety of ways, and since your students are playing with “money”, they will enjoy buying things. (You can even work a student store into your unit for some real-world applications.) 7. Buying Items Now that your students can identify all of the coins, you can bring some fun activities into their independent practice, early finisher work, center activities, and homework. These activities take money instruction to a whole new level (and will keep your students engaged because they are FUN!) Pass out a certain amount of money and have your students prioritize what they would spend their money on. If they choose to buy toys, what will they do for food or clothing?
Plastic Penny were a British 1960s pop band, formed in November 1967 before splitting up in August 1969. The group had one hit single early in 1968: the song "Everything I Am". Most of the members went on to greater fame with other bands or in session work.

How many of you ask your students to write about what they want to be when they grow up at some point in the year? Yes, they can write a few sentences about what that person does, but let’s take it a little deeper. Using an interactive notebook activity, your students can explore the things they are good at. What kind of career lends itself to those strengths? What do they want to learn from their career? Are there any values this type of career will instill in them? What are some things they definitely do not want to do?During the first few days of our money unit, we watch a video or two and then complete a variety of activities that help us identify and name the different coins. Integrate these activities into your whole group, independent practice, and small group centers to cement money identification concepts. 1. Start with a Video on Money Identification You can also extend this lesson by having students measure the same object with different coins. How many pennies long is the pencil versus how many quarters long? This is where the idea of “the unit of measurement” becomes so important. An object with a length of 5 pennies is much different than an object with a length of 5 quarters. 17. Coins can Help with Sight Words?

You can use this activity as a planning guide to a much more in-depth piece of writing. Each section of the interactive notebook could be a paragraph for older students. You could even make it a little more fun by having your students take an attributes test. Does their dream career match, or is the test way off?Once the whole group lesson is over, you can follow it up with a price tag independent practice. You can also put any of these worksheets in a center with plastic coins and your students can practice making exact change all week long.
