Money Poem and Test FREEBIE Updates!
With common core in full force, we don’t do as much with coins in first grade as we used to.
I know, I know… we are OK with that!
However, we still want the kids to be able to identify coins and know how much it is worth. The good part is, we don’t have to agonize over those little ones who just can’t grasp this complex and abstract concept. Nonetheless, finding the value of a stack of coins exemplifies the importance of skip counting accurately and skip counting is a 1st grade skill.
We recite our money poem a few times a week. This really seems to help cement the values of each coin. The money poem and money test freebies have been quite popular with a lot of teachers – and that’s been embarrassing because they were a little sad on the cosmetic end of things. 🙂
So I’ve updated them.
