Objective

Students will learn the names and values of different denominations of paper money ($1, $5, $10, and $20), count sets of money that include both coins and bills, complete a money chart, and read and solve word problems.

Directions


  1. Using the coins, have the children show you the different combinations of coins that can be used to make $1. Chart the different combinations on butcher paper or poster board. (See the example below.)
  2. Go over the practice pages with the children. When doing the magazine subscription practice page on page 32, model for the children how to read and solve each word problem and then place this information on the graph.
