We have been working hard this week on identifying coins and telling their value. Today we created a whole group game to help with cementing those ideas. We made a "Bigger than Life" gameboard (you know my love of those shower curtain sized gameboards!). We divided the board into 25 sections with tape and then filled each section with either a coin, the coin's name, the value, or the value words. We taped paper coins to a foam die. The kids took turns rolling the die and covering something on the board that matched with the coin rolled. We played until we had 5 in a row covered! The kids were completely engaged for the entire game, helping each other and cheering when we finally had 5 in a row. A smaller version of this game will become a math tub game for next week.
You can get a printable of this game including large cards for the whole group lesson and small game board for math tubs.Simply CLICK HERE!!! :) It's FREE!
(I am hoping that google docs is cooperating. Every time I upload things lately, it looks different. Remember, you can always e-mail me and I will send you the doc that way!)
Next week we will begin a reading/social studies unit on family wants and needs. I have shared my "Me and My Family" before, but I added some elements using two favorite books, "A Chair for My Mother," and "The Relatives Came."
