A schedule of sorts – and each day begins with these daily practice activities and then we get started with any worksheets/experiences that have been planned for the day.
I want to share a little bit about the “Add a Coin”/”Coin Recognition” part of our Morning Time!
All you need is: A Hundreds Board Pennies, Nickels, Dimes, and Quarters* A Small Sorting Container for All of Your Coins A Separate Small Plastic Container for Daily Storage
On the first day of school (You could begin on any day!), we start counting! We simply add 1¢ for each day of school – slowly but surely working our way to 100!
Each day, we lay our coins out on the hundreds board, but when we are finished counting coins/adding coins, we store our coins in a small container until the next day.
Week #1 Monday – add a penny Tuesday – add a penny Wednesday – add a penny Thursday – add a penny Friday – add a penny AND THEN show how all five pennies can be traded in for a nickel
