Introduction: | Have students look at the coins and see how they are the same and how they are different. Then have them pair with a partner with a set of pretend coins. Have them discuss what the coins looks like how they are the same and how they are different. |
Development: | Have students explain from the different groups. Have each group share one thing they noticed. Then ask questions if they know the different names for different coins. Write all answers on the board. Then explain that each coin has a different name. Explain what each coin is called. Explain who is on the front of the different coins and what is on the back of each coin. Ask them if they know how much the penny is worth, after the student answers redirect to get the correct answer. Then Show them the real coin.(repeat for all coins.) |
Practice: | Have students count out sets of coins you have placed out. First have sets of pennies with a value up to 10 cents, then have groups of nickels up to 20 cents, then have groups of pennies and nickels with an amount up to 9 cents. Next have groups of dimes up to $1.00. Then have groups of quarters up to $1.00. Then have groups of dimes and quarters with a value up to $1.00. |
Accommodations: | Have pictures and labels around the classroom of the coins. Have real and fake coins for the students to explore and examine. Have coins from other countries in the classroom for students to explore with. |
Checking For Understanding: | Observe students in the store at the checkout to see if they know how to make the correct change for the items they want to buy. |
Closure: | Explain to students that knowing how much something is worth is very important for when you want to go shopping. Knowing that you have enough money to cover what you want to buy before you get to the checkout is very important. |
Evaluation: | See how well students understand and comprehend the material. Then see how well they are engaged in the lesson, if students are not engaged start to think of ways that it needs to be modified to keep their attention to make sure that maximum learning occurs. |
Teacher Reflections: | The lesson was great. The students really enjoyed being able to go shopping in the classroom. They enjoyed the freedom of being able to choose what they bought. Some of my students were able to get the concept of the lesson perfectly, with adding the values together. Other students had some issues with the adding portion of the lesson. I would go back and make sure that I taught the different coins and their values on different days so that they might have more time with each coin and value so the concepts might be more defined. |
