Money Money Money Part 2: Counting Like and Unlike Sets
This is the part 2 of my series on money. With this podcast students will practice skip counting as they learn to count like and unlike sets of coins.
Money Money Money Part 1: Name that Coin
Since money is an important component of our everyday lives, I have designed a series of podcast that will help students learn to identify each coin, count money, and make change. The first podcast focuses on coin identification. After viewing this podcast, students should be able to identify each coin and determine its monetary value.
In this podcast our class will demonstrate how we use calendar math each day. We discussed the days of the week. We graphed the daily, monthly and yearly weather. We used the 100's chart to practice skip counting and even and odd numbers. We used straws to count the days of school, grouping ones, tens and one hundreds.
