Math Monday - Money (pennies and dimes) and skip counting by tens
We started this money activity a few weeks ago with 10 pennies. We discussed how each penny is worth 1 cent. Then we price tagged 10 can goods from 1-10cents and practiced buying them with the pennies. He really enjoyed this activity.
This week we moved on to dimes. We talked about how each dime is worth 10cents, and practiced counting by tens to 100. Then we took 5 canned goods and priced them fro 10-50cents and again practiced buying them, but this time with dimes. We set up a conveyor belt using 4 pieces of construction paper, and also used the time to practice ordinal numbers from first - fourth.
I had him pick the 4 objects, place them on the conveyor belt, then I would ask him which item was first, second, third, fourth (in random order); how much that item cost, and then how many dimes he needed to pay for that item.
We also used this game (scroll down to math, click on paint brush skip counting) to practice counting by 10s (can be used for 2s and 5s as well).
