Help reinforce coin identification with this quick,
easy and fun dice game.
Students choose a partner and take turns rolling
the dice. If they roll a one they color the penny; if they roll a two they color the second coin (the nickel)
and so on. However, if they roll a six they lose their turn.
first one to color all of the coins on their bookmark is the winner.
This is also a nice opportunity to review ordinal numbers as well. Before the game starts, ask children what the first coin is, the last coin, third coin etc.
when children are done playing the game, for a quick whole-group
assessment, have them cover the names of the coins and ask them to:
“Point to the penny.” “Now point to the quarter.” and so on, ’til you
have reviewed all of the coins.
When the game is over, have students keep their bookmarks handy to refer to, as well as practice coin identification and ordinal numbers on another day.
