1 Introduction

Students will watch an educreation that was created by the teacher. It will review skip counting groups of coins and also introduce how to add money values together. The educreation will pause for students to work on different tasks and skills together. 

2 Independent Work

The teacher will introduce the amazing coin app to the students. In the app they will be able to work on various skills with money. They will be asked to find the coin with the greatest/lease value, to match coins, to find the value of a group of coins, to create a group of coins that equals a value given to them, etc. It is a fun interactive app for students to use to learn about money. While students are working on iPads, teacher will be calling back small groups of students to work on certain skills they are struggling with and need extra practice with.
