Help reinforce coin identification with this quick, easy and fun dice game. Students choose a partner and take turns rolling the dice. If they roll a one they color the penny; if they roll a two they color the second coin (the nickel) and so on. However, if they roll a six they lose their turn. The first one to color all of the coins on their bookmark is the winner. This is also a nice opportunity to review ordinal numbers as well. Before the game starts, ask children what the first coin is, the last coin, third coin etc. is.
Later, when children are done playing the game, for a quick whole-group assessment, have them cover the names of the coins and ask them to: "Point to the penny." "Now point to the quarter." and so on, 'til you have reviewed all of the coins.
This game will be FREE for an entire year! Woo hoo.
After which time, it will be up-dated and put in my TpT shop.
