Money Cubes

A few weeks ago I subbed for a teacher who had me put together some math stuff during prep.

Her main thing she had me put together were these money cubes:

This is so visual for the kiddos!  
1 cube= a penny
5 cubes = a nickel
10 cubes= a dime
25 cubes= a quarter.

I taped real coins onto the cubes. And she was specific that I make the whole set one color, another visual thing for the kiddos.

Another teacher happened to be in the classroom to ask me a question and wrote down this idea because she thought it was so good!

This is a quick post, but hopefully it gave you some ideas!

  2. Great idea! Where was it the last 9 years when I had to teach money?! I am so relieved that we don't have to cover money anymore! Such a difficult concept for firsties!
