1-2-3 Come Do Some 100 Day Money Activities With Me
For those of you who haven't celebrated 100 Day yet, the "Making Cents on 100 Day" packet includes some different and interesting activities for your celebration, that involve money.
Even tho' I designed the packet to go along with my 100 Day activities, they easily fit your lessons about coins, and would be appropriate anytime.
The activities are simple enough for kinders, but can be challenging enough for older kiddos as well. Simply pick which activities are most appropriate then "print & go".
The packet reinforces addition, counting, data analysis, comparison, greater & less than, coin identification, graphing, & tally marks.
Students work independently on their worksheets, or can partner up to complete one as well.
I've also included a writing prompt that relates, plus some "funny money" and a "We're 100 Days Smarter!" poster for your bulletin board display.
The "Building Vocabulary With Dollar & 100 Dollar Words" is also a super-fun, money-themed activity appropriate for 100 Day or any other time.
I did a ton of work on this packet to make it easy-peasy for you!
The Dollar Word packet reinforces addition, critical thinking, strategy, cooperative learning, counting, plus greater & less than.
There are also teachable moments for reviewing prefixes, suffixes, plurals & parts of speech, as part of the strategy of finding a dollar word.
Keep things simple for younger students, raise the bar and include more for older kiddos.
Using calculators for checking, provides added practice and enables younger students to take part in these activities.
Dollar words are great anytime for building vocabulary and practicing math skills, as well as an interesting Daily-5 word work activity.
Because words are worth 100 points (pennies for dollar words, or dollars, for one hundred dollar words) it’s perfect for your 100-Day celebration too.
Each letter is given a point value. Introduce the lesson by having students find out the value of their name. (A worksheet is provided).
Afterwards, challenge students to try and find words whose total equals 100.
Beforehand, discuss some strategy: Can you make it plural to gain easy, additional points? How ‘bout a prefix or suffix?
Have students keep track of their efforts, so even if they don’t find a dollar word, they can share the word with their highest total.
Students can work individually, with a partner, or in small groups.
I’ve included cute, one and one hundred dollar bill templates for children to record their dollar word on.
They can draw a picture of themselves or glue on a photo to the front. Run these off on light green paper. Students fold over & glue together.
There’s a balloon option, with 2 sizes as well.
The packet also includes an alphabetical list of 740 “dollar” words; a dollar word dictionary for students to record their results; worksheets; 60, dollar word clue cards for playing a Dollar Word riddle game, with an answer key, and 2 recording sheets; as well as a letter value bookmark, plus mini-certificates of praise.
Today's featured FREEBIE is a sweet "Shapely Snow Angel" packet that includes an emergent reader, craftivity, plus graphing extentions that reinforce 2D shapes. I hope you find it useful.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
The wind is howling outside my window, so it's time to toss another log on the fire and grab a cup of tea. Wishing you a warm and cozy day.
