Money Doodles with FREEBIE Check Blank image

Well, this set I would have to say took me the longest of all sets I've worked on.  Not that there are more images, but there was so much more detail in creating these coins look real.  I've very happy with how they turned out.  But I'm sick of working on them, and its time to move on to something else!  :)

Where you can find this set:
Carrie's Teacher's Notebook store HERE
Carrie's TPT store HERE


And for all our faithful followers, our FREEBIE check blank:

Counting Money Poster FREEBIES



I don't know if its just me or every other first grade teacher out there, but counting coins has to be the most difficult thing to teach a first grader.  When we count coins, I always make the student "show their work" by showing the "skip counting" underneath each coin as they count it (what they say in their head when they count).  That's the only way I have been taught how I can make sense of what the students are doing inside their heads. 

I made these posters today to post on my math wall to help students remember that you count pennies by ONES, nickels by FIVES, dimes by TENS, and quarters by TWENTY-FIVES.  We will see if it helps!  Its yours FREE at our TPT store HERE.

Here is another FREEBIE to go with it!  Our Money Posters HERE.

What is My Word Worth?

Pin It

Here is an activity that we use to practice skip counting coins.  Students choose a vocabulary word, sight word, their name, or spelling word and write it in the top box of the student activity sheet.  In the middle box, the student stamps, writes, or glues the corresponding coins to match the letters in the word.  Students count the coins by writing the skip counting (what they say out loud as they count it) underneath each coin.  Then in the bottom box, they write how much their word is worth using the $ and cents sign.

You can make a huge poster of this and hand it in your math center or make multiple copies of each mini-poster and do as a large group activity.  If you have coin stampers that works great for a math center, but if you don't have enough stampers to use large group, you can use reproducibles of coins and have the students cut and glue the coins or just draw the coins.

Here is a picture of the 3 posters we made along with the activity sheet:
