Money Coin Booklet - Penny

It's All About the Money!

When I was a little girl, my aunt, who worked at the bank in town, would bring coin bags and coin wrappers home for me to help her roll coins. (Yep, that shows my age!) I loved sorting and counting and wrapping those coins. I still love playing around with money, and I think most kids do, too.

I wanted to display my Money Booklets here. Engaging, interactive booklets to use in math stations or as morning work or in small group time.
With these coin booklets, students will identify, count, and state the value of a specific coin while completing interactive activities.
Just print and go – NO PREP!
We learn each coin separately first, then combine coins later, so, here are pics of my Penny Booklet:

All of these Money Booklets have the same format, so I will just post one image for my other booklets. You can click on the image to view the product in my store.

And if you need Money Clip Cards to go with your Money Booklets. . .

ELA Easter Eggs

It's that time of year again - time for plastic Easter eggs!
How about a few low-prep, super-easy ELA uses for those plastic Easter eggs?

Letter Match
Super fun for sight word beginners
Rhyming Words
CVC Family Eggs
Compound Words
Plural Nouns
Parts of Speech
And here is a new idea I am trying. How many words can you make?
How Many Words Can You Make?
You can use this recording sheet for any make-words activity. I like to switch out letter eggs to practice weekly spelling words or as a sight word review. The kiddos arrange the letter eggs in the carton to form a word, write the word on the recording sheet, then rearrange the letter eggs to form a new word.
I now offer the recording sheet as a freebie in my store; feel free to click on the image to download.
