prince & co.: The Trading Game: Money Style.Race to a Quarter. This game is VERY simple but powerful for the kids because it helps them to make those connections that 5 pennies = 1 nickel, 2 nickels = 1 dime, etc.
TEACHING THE KIDS -"i like money" game - for teaching coin recognition. glue plastic coins to popsicle sticks. students pull out stick + if they name coin, they can keep it. if they pull out a "bankrupt" stick, all sticks go back in the can!
I love this bulletin board---Have students bring in any food box or item to hang up on the board, then have them figure out in coins how much each costs. This is very helpful for young students who are just learning about the value of money.
