Today students used pennies to figure out multiple equations of a sum in the game Heads or Tails. Students knew the total number of pennies they started with, then they gave their cup a spill and counted the heads and tails. Students filled out a data table examining different combinations of the total number of pennies! It was great to see students solving so many problems!
Next time you use coins at the store, let your child get a good look at them. Share how much each coin is worth and let them watch you count your change! You'll be amazed how quickly they learn the coin names and how much each is worth!
