Grade Level(s): K-2
2. Game rules - Each student will get a chance to participate - The students will start counting from one (follow their words by pointing at the corresponding numbers on the chart) - As each student continues counting, hold up the number of fingers you want your students to count by (1, 5, or 10) - Stop when the student gets to 100.
3. Continue this game with about half of your class (holding your fingers up in a different sequence for each child, and getting progressively more difficult)
4. Now stop your students and review the values of each coin.
5. Change the rules of the game slightly - instead of holding up fingers, hold up the paper coin versions of the penny, nickel, and dime.
6. Return to the game and have the remaining half of your class skip count by 10s, 5s, and 1s, but making the association between the coins and their values.
