1-2-3 Come Do Some Christmas Coin Activities With Me
Here is a quick, easy and fun game to help reinforce coins (penny, nickel, dime & quarter) that would be perfect for a December math activity, or your Christmas party day.
You can run off the Christmas tree on green construction paper and have students trim, or simply run off the template on white paper and have children color their tree.
Pass out a set of paper coins to each student. They color and cut them out, and then pick a partner, taking turns rolling a dice four times.
Their 1st roll equals how many penny ornaments they will glue to their tree, the 2nd roll is for nickels and so on.
I've included a poster for you to hang up for children to refer to. To practice more math, I've provided a worksheet extension for the game, where students fill in data.
There are several options for different levels of study. I've also included completed samples to help clarify things.
For more coin identification practice, there's also a "color the coins" worksheet. Color words are also reinforced.
One worksheet simply has students count the coins; another has them count each type of coin and then total them.

Thanks for visiting. Our refrigerator "died" Friday, so I have some major clean & toss chores to get to, before the new one arrives this afternoon. Wishing you a happy and productive day.
