Mrs. Z's Money Math  


As you all know, we were supposed to start a math unit on money.  Due to a situation that is out of our control, we are all adapting to a "new normal".  I have designed this website to provide students with information and activities that will allow them to have fun while learning all about U.S. currency.  The attached pages will be organized by lesson.  Each lesson will have learning activities and something for the student to complete. Fun songs and videos are found under the Resources and Activities tab.  I added some read-alouds under the Books tab.  There is even one read by me!  I appreciate everyone's participation and I miss you all!!

You will find below, my information, the unit standards, essential questions, and vocabulary.  

                  Unit Vocabulary             

Half Dollar; Quarter; Dime; Nickel; Penny

We will also be learning about symbols:

Cent (¢); Dollar ($); Less Than (<); Greater Than (>); Equal To (=)

The definations and uses for each of these will appear in the lessons.

Essential Questions

  *What is the name of each coin?

*How much is each coin worth?

                 *What strategies can be used to count money?

Unit Standard
