Here is a quick, easy and fun game to help reinforce coins (penny, nickel, dime & quarter). Students pick a partner and take turns rolling the 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.
The Buck Stops Here!
You asked for it, you got it!
I’ve had several requests to make an easy reader about the dollar, as a way of reviewing the various coins that make up a dollar. I had time this week to check that off the “honey-do” list.
I did a little research on the “silver dollar”. The US mint continues to keep coin collectors happy by minting different designs of that coin.
You may want to go to the bank and see if you can get a few examples to show your students.
In this booklet, students trace and write, as well as cut and glue. Encourage students to count all of the coins on the page that now make up the dollar, after they have glued that final coin to complete the dollar.
When everyone has finished their booklet, read it together to review concepts of print.

There’s an interesting and informative 5-minute YouTube video of How you make coins, that’s well done, that would be a nice culmination to this activity. Click on the link to have a look.
