Each year my first grade students ALWAYS have trouble identifying coins. I know that they learn all about it in kindergarten but they just cannot remember it!
I was inspired by learning that the third grade state assessments had new coins on the assessment to create simple money worksheets (which I can NEVER find many of these anywhere) and coin identification activities using some of the new coins.
The volunteer money script is included in my Teaching Coin Identification unit on TPT. I'd love to post it here for free but I have to figure out how to use google documents! :) Until then, I will post a picture of just the script. There also is a letter to the volunteer and the recording sheets.
