I teach my students math and money skills with a coin counting activity that we do throughout the year. I start by asking them to count coins that equal the number of days left in school. I then adapt to ask them the largest number of coins to equal that number as well as the smallest number. We are a year-round school, and right now are starting our second block. The kids are doing well counting the change and really seem to be grasping the math concepts. Next we will have to go shopping!
