I'm so happy you're here! Thanks for visiting our blog hop!

I am...

I have two products to share with you today! The first product is a paid product.

My first graders always seem to struggle with money each year. Many kids just don't see or get to feel and play with any actual money. Most of us use our credit or debit cards almost all the time. I created this unit to move gradually through money concepts beginning with coin recognition. My students love working on money because it makes them feel so grown up! I've had so much success with this product! This product is $5 in my TPT store.

**You can win my unit as well as all the paid products featured by my fellow hop hosts! Winner will be announced on Sunday!**

The second product I want to share with you is a little preview of my Moolah Unit.

If you would like to start the hop from the beginning head to

Counting

ReplyDeleteMy students struggle with counting by 25s and finding the smallest way to write a money amount.

ReplyDeleteWhen you have to add different coins together....bless! When they get it, they get it!

ReplyDeleteDefinitely when they have to make exact money amounts using fewest/most coins!

ReplyDeleteThe exact change needed!

ReplyDeleteMy students have a hard time counting on in their heads. They also mistake the nickel and the quarter.

ReplyDeleteThey have a hard time making change! :-(

ReplyDeleteConfusing nickels and quarters.

ReplyDeleteThey have a hard time counting on from one coin to a different coin. They can count two quarters easily, but throw a dime and a nickle in there and they lose it! ☺

First Grade is Fantabulous!My students have difficulty counting a group of different coins. They can easily count one type of coin, but if you add a different type of coin they get all messed up.

ReplyDeleteThey struggle with counting different combinations of coins.

DeleteSome of them struggle with counting dimes and nickels together.

ReplyDeleteMy students tend to struggle remembering the value of the coins as well as counting a group of mixed coin denominations

ReplyDeleteMy students confuse the size of the coins with the amount they are, dimes are smaller than nickels so nickels must be worth more than dimes right?!

ReplyDeleteMy students struggle with identifying the backs of coins and counting mixed groups of coins.

What is so difficult is all the new coin images!

ReplyDeleteUsing the fewest number of coins for a given amount!

ReplyDeleteThey do not have the experience now. Parents were able to give a kid one dollar and send them to the concession stand at a Little League game, or send them to a corner store. Parents cannot do that now for safety concerns. My students have a very hard time when counting two different denominations of coins...ie: nickel to penney, or dime to penney, etc. We need to give them more practice.

ReplyDeleteCounting from dime to nickel (10, 15) or quarter to nickel (25, 30) or quarter to 10 (25, 35)

ReplyDeleteI think the best part is they get to use scissors and glue. It can be so easy to go for days without them, but they just need the practice! Thanks for the money unit!

ReplyDeleteMoney is a challenge for my kids too. These are great tools to help them learn and practice.

ReplyDeleteAdding money is always a struggle for my kiddos.
