The Study of Money

First grade students are currently embarking on an in-depth unit about money. To begin, we reviewed recognition skills, asking students to name and identify coins and their values.  We watched brief introductory videos and sang along to money themed songs.  We have practiced skip counting groups of coins, adding and subtracting coins, finding equivalent groups of coins, and exchanging coins.  Students have been using dollar and cents notation daily in our Calendar Math during our morning meetings. Thus far, students have enjoyed reading about different coins and then investigating themselves. In the coming days, they will continue working on identifying and counting coins, practice money related skills on IXL and even exploring what coins from other countries look like as a part of our cultural studies.
