My Students

Penny! Nickel! Dime! Quarter! Bills! Do you remember when you learned to count coins correctly? Do you remember the pride you had when you counted out your own money and paid for a new toy at the store all by yourself?!?

My students are hard working, want to learn and have big dreams.

We are team of 40 second grade students that make up two classes. We are located in rural Indiana. My students come from a wide range of economic backgrounds. We also have a wide range of academic abilities. But, they have one thing in common, their love for learning and exploring.

My Project

My students need activities that will teach them the important skill of counting money. These centers will allow them to add, subtract and count coins and bills. We will use the Grab and Match centers not only to reinforce second grade skills, but also to push the students who are ready for third grade skills. These centers will not only teach them the importance of money, but will also teach them how to get along with others while working in small groups.

Please, help me get these amazing centers into the hands of my 40 second grade math students!

Thank you for your consideration.
