How Much "Cents" Does Your Money Make? Teacher's Guide [and] Student Material.
Shell, Dee; Estes, Cynthia
This unit, which contains student materials and teacher's guide, is designed to teach second grade students to count change using pennies, dimes, and nickels. Instructions for students are on a teacher-made taped cassette. A read-along story introduces the unit. Section I reviews money signs and symbols that students need to recognize. Activities include matching the coin with its value and identifying coins and their value from a worksheet. In Section II, students calculate the amount of money shown by groupings of coins, count change contained in a piggy bank drawing, play ten-cent and fifteen-cent search games similar to a word search game, count money in drawings of pockets, and work a puzzle by matching coins with the correct amount of money. The teacher's guide includes objectives, special instructions, reproducible pre- and posttests and worksheets with keys, and lists materials needed. Approximate time for the unit is four to six hours. (KC)
