I have a “Money Song” we sing at our morning meeting. Each day a penny is added to our piggy bank and the “student of the day” is the banker and counts the money and writes the amount on the board. While he/she is writing we sing the song….”I like money to buy things at the store. Money, money, money, I always want more. A penny’s worth one cent. A nickels worth 5 cents, a dime’s worth ten cents, a quarter….25. I like money to buy things at the store. Money, money money, I always want more!”
I have a display on my board with a large cutout of each doing and the name and amount printed next to it.
Unfortunately, money is not in the PA Common Core so we don’t teach it as part of our math curriculum.
