Product Description

If your students are any like the students I've taught over the years, they probably struggle with counting coins, finding equivalent values, and making change. Even the brightest students often struggle with these skills! This 200+ page pack is chocked full of teacher tips, how-to's, activities, and resources to teach to those three difficult skills using three tried and true strategies: "hairy" coins for counting, brace maps for equivalent values, and 100's charts for counting and making change.

There are three core sections to this pack, based on three strategies: “hairy” coins {to count coins}, equivalencies {to target the ability to swap coin for coin in making change scenarios}, and 100’s chart {to count coins, and make change}. Each section has extension teacher tips and notes on how to implement.

Included in the “hairy” coin section:

• assessments - pre- and post-assessments, prerequisite skills, exit slips
• anchor charts
• flipbook and graphic organizer
• differentiated practice pages
•“The Ballad of Hairy Coins” craftivity
• differentiated task card workstation

Hi, I'm Sarah Plum! I'm a second-grade teacher in Northern Virginia. I teach a high-population of English Language Learners (ELLs), so all of my resources are ELL-friendly and fully-differentiated! I love math, and try to always find ways to create engaging, differentiated materials that are easy for teachers to implement, easy for students to LOVE, and easy for parents to replicate at home!
