Students are introduced to coins starting with the penny. They practice counting a group of pennies in order. Next, we move on to working with nickel. They review its value of 5 and then count groups of nickels. Following this, students practice finding the total of groups of nickels and pennies. They also complete an activity where they count a given amount of money. Students learn the value of a dime count dimes. To practice, they are shown a price tag with a corresponding group of coins, and they determine if the amount is correct. The final coin discussed is the quarter. They practice the skip counting sequence of 25, 50, 75, 100 by clapping along with it. Students count combinations with quarters by writing the numbers they say as they count. A dice-throwing game provides additional practice in counting with all 4 coins. The lesson then discusses how you can show coin amounts in different ways such as 2 nickels equals a dime. Instruction concludes with two story problems about money.
