Grade level & Topic:
Second grade, measurement and data, will also meet writing standards
Given different types of money (dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies) students will be able to accurately state the value of each.
Given pictures of different combinations of money presented in word problems, students will be able to determine and record the total amount of money.
Students will be able to record their thought process on how they arrived at a total.
Using technology, students will write and solve their own word problems using different combinations of money.
MA Curriculum Frameworks:
2.MD.7 Solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and ¢ symbols appropriately. Example: If you have 2 dimes and 3 pennies, how many cents do you have?
2.W.6 With guidance and support from adults, use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers.
What are the different types of money (dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies) worth?
How can we make different amounts of money using different types of money in order to pay for something?
How can technology help us apply our knowledge of the different types of money?
In the first lesson, students will take an online quiz using Kahoot! they will be shown pictures of dollar bills, quarter, dimes, nickels and pennies and then select the correct monetary value on their devices. The follow up to this will include pictures of different combinations of money and students will be asked to determine the total value.
Student responses can be assessed using this tool based on student ‘nicknames’.
“What is the total value of all of the coins?”
In the second lesson, students will be asked to author a story about money using StoryBird, students will complete the assignment online and teacher will evaluate and provide feedback online.
I am trying to find an app, or a tool that specifically focuses on money. Possibly a fun activity using the SmartBoard would be helpful for my first lesson in reviewing the names of the coins and their values. I plan on giving a real-world scenario to start off the lesson, like I had to pay $2 for gum but only had nickels and dimes.
For the second lesson, I think I would start it off by reading a story reviewing the values and that helps motivate the lesson by providing a real-world scenario.
