Money, Money, Money

Can you here the song?  We are working on a very short money unit in my class.  The kids are required to know the names and values of the 4 basic coins.  That is a huge step back in our curriculum.  The advantage it that the kids will REALLY know their coins before they learn how to count money.  That was always a really tough skill in first grade!  Here are some of the great resources I have been using:

Harry Kindergarten’s Money Videos on YouTube:

Cara Carroll’s “The Great Coin Collection” from TPT – amazing activities ready to turn into centers!  Also provides for great differentiation!

Harcourt Publishers also have a great site for games!  These are wonderful to incorporate into centers.  Each of our student computers has Active Board, the Promethean Board software loaded, so I can make charts with a screen shot of the game and link directly to it.  I can lock everything is so that it is a great work board during centers!


Every New Beginning is having a Target card giveaway!  Click on the image to go to her blog and get details on the giveaway!  

Happy almost June!

  1. Thanks for the resources on money. We are beginning to teach money again next year as a part of the Common Core Standards so I'm trying to get as many resources as possible!
