Cars & Coins!

Here's a quick little center I did for counting money. Money is the last unit we covered with our new Singapore Math series. It is not one of my favorite math concepts to teach because it can be very confusing, especially when combining coins.  I used this game on the Smart board for the children to practice.

I also made this "Cars & Coins" game, modeled after Mrs. Lee's awesome center ideas...I printed cars (DJ Inkers clip art) on different colors of paper and put coin stickers on them.
The children counted the money amounts on the cars, wrote the amount, and colored the car to match on the response sheet. I tried to keep the amounts pretty simple, so they could really learn the value of each coin. Thanks for checking in and have a great day!
