Our money unit

We have been exploring money in our new unit. During our morning and afternoon project times, the Otters have had the opportunity to learn about the use of money while playing in our class store. They have had the chance to practice math skills in counting money and change while purchasing their items at the store. Each day during class meetings, the Otters have been learning about the values of certain coins and began adding the value of coins together. As a class, we have been practicing our money math skills through play, smart board activities and board games.
