Have You Ever Thought to Use These in Preparation for Coin Counting?
Do you know how they have those clearance buggies near the checkout at Wal-mart? Well, I just happened across these poker chips yesterday, and I got them for…get this…50 cents! YAY! When I saw them, they immediately reminded me of the money activities I created, and how I prepare students to count coin values first before adding real coins. Look how similar they look to the money sheet from my unit below. The only thing is that there aren’t chips that would resemble pennies, but I am still going to use these next time for their manipulative factor. Students can practice adding on 5’s and 10’s to 25’s.
