1-2-3 Come Do A Few More Coin Activities With Me!
I had quite a few requests for some specific coin-related lessons, so I made time to get these designed, as I think many others will find them helpful as well.
The ever-popular 10 frames packet collection, has really grown! I think I've covered all of the monthly themes, but am happy to make others.
Karissa, from California, says she has collected them all, and wondered if I could make some with coins on them for her kinders.
I've included 10 frames for pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters, plus extra tiles of each, so you can run off and use them as manipulatives. Using real pennies would also be fun for your kiddos. Click on the link to view/download the 10 Frames Coin Packet.
Connie, in Delaware, teaches preschool and wondered if I had any coin games? I liked to use dice to help my Y5's subitize, (Quickly identify how many in a group, without having to count.) so I designed the Coins On A Roll dice game.
Simply run off the coin bookmarks. Students pick a partner and take turns rolling the dice. If they roll a one they color in the penny. If they roll a two, they color in the second coin, which is a nickel and so on. However, if someone rolls a six, they lose their turn.
The first child who colors in all of the coins on ther bookmark is the winner. This game also provides a teachable moment to review ordinal numbers as well. Click on the link to view/download the Coins On A Roll dice game.
Quite a few teachers asked if I could make some worksheets involving coins. Many of them were required to send homework home and several needed something for early finishers to do.
These are also great for Daily 5 word work or a sub folder. Click on the link to view/download the 10-page Coin Worksheet packet.
I also had several homeschooling moms and teachers who were looking for some crafts with a coin theme, so I re-designed the coin dangler.
My Y5's enjoyed making the "Money Matters Mobiles." They looked wonderful swirling and twirling from our hallway ceiling.
They're also an easy way to review sizes (small-medium and large) as well as the circle shape, and provide great cutting practice too.
I opted to add the paper dollar to the top and cut out my students' school picture, so they could glue it over Washington's face.
My report card standards only required my Y5's to know the penny, nickel, dime and quarter, but I've also included templates for the half dollar and dollar coins as well. Click on the link to view/download the Money Matters Coin Dangler craftivity.
Finally, Connie, from Oregon, really liked the Olympics flip for facts file folder activity, that was included in the Olympic writing packet and asked if I had one for coins. I thought this was a wonderful idea, so I got right to it.
File folder facts are a simple and effective way to introduce research to early elementary students. Children search for interesting facts Online, choose their favorites, and then put them into their own words.
As with the Olympic file folder, I've also included several pages of how to explain citations to your kiddos and provide links too.
The Flip For Facts File Folders are a nice pre-cursor to writing a report. Click on the link to view/download the Coin Flip For Facts File Folder Packet.

1-2-3 Come Do Some Pilgrim Activities With Me!
I'm always open to suggestions for 10-frames templates. They are such a wonderful vehicle for teaching all sorts of math concepts, so it's nice to revisit them each month.
By changing the theme and manipulatives for the cards, you keep things fresh and interesting; so when Kathie, over in Montana, asked for a Pilgrim set, I whipped some together and thought others might enjoy them too. Click on the link to view/download the Pilgrim 10 Frames packet.
The easy reader 1-2-3 Count Pilgrims With Me is a wonderful accompaniment.
The packet also includes:
As long as I was diddling around with my master templates, I decided to make a Pilgrim Shape Game packet too. I've included a shape spinner in the newer shape game packets.
You can continue to use the laminated shape cards in a math center, or you can have students pick a partner and take turns spinning.
Whatever shape they land on, they place the matching shape tile on the twin Pilgrim card. Make extra sets, and reinforce colors too. Using a dry erase marker, students color in whatever shape they spin with that matching color. Click on the link to view/download the Pilgrim Shape Games.
In another Pilgrim-themed math game, students work on their addition skills. They take turns rolling dice to come up with an answer, and then color the sum that they find on the Pilgrim coloring sheet. Click on the link to view/download the Pilgrim additon coloring game.
I See "Sum" Fall Puzzles includes some Pilgrim/Thanksgiving templates and is also a math activity that can be set up as an independent center or played as a game.
You can print, laminate and cut the puzzles to use in your math center, or run them off and have students cut and glue them together. There are blank templates so that you can do subtraction as well as addition. Click on the link above to view/download it.
Thanks for visiting. As always feel free to PIN away. The "Pin it" button is located at the top, on the burgundy menu bar. I design and blog daily, so I hope you can pop on by tomorrow for the newest FREEBIES.

1-2-3 Come Do Some More Columbus Day Activities With Me!
I had several requests for some 10-frames to use on Columbus Day, and quickly whipped them off this morning. Click on the link to view/download the 10-frames packet for Columbus Day.
While I was putzing with the Columbus clip art for the 10-frames, I decided to make a set of alphabet cards that you could also use for your Columbus Day activities.
I always liked to have extra centers and games for my kiddo's to do on special days, especially when I didn't have the time to do something specific.
Hope you enjoy them. Click on the link to view/download the Columbus Day Alphabet Cards. I've also included a list of things you can do with the cards, including games.
Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and an interesting Columbus Day!
