I've been steadily plugging along at the "Any Time" centers this year and I'm starting to see the light! Here's a sneak peek at the newest set - "Circus Cents" - 10 money centers with a fun circus theme that can be used ANY TIME of the year!
Now, with common core, money is not addressed in first grade. That means our babes are coming up with a severe lack of money knowledge. These centers address everything from counting same set coins to equivalent sets to making change to problem solving! Everything you'll need during your money unit.
In Animal Tips, students will count sets of mixed coins (half dollars, quarters, dimes, and nickels). They will poke a pencil through the hole of their answer and check the back to see if they were correct.
In Is That Odd? students will count the mixed set of coins and write the amount on the card. They will then decide if the amount is ever or odd and sort the cards on a sorting mat (not shown here, but included).
In Tents of Cents, students will select a tent and then use the coins included to make that amount using the fewest coins possible.
So, there you have it! Circus Cents - 10 centers to provide students with the practice and reinforcement of all the skills they'll use during your money unit. What I love most about these centers is that they're so versatile - you can use them as centers, early finishers activities, or roam the rooms. And, there's 10 of them....perfect for pairing your kids and having everyone practicing their money skills at the same time while you work with small groups. #centerlove You can pick them up now at our Teacher's Clubhouse on TpT shop for just $4.99!
