So my first graders are once again, back to reviewing money in our math curriculum. I watched the way the teacher taught the lesson today because I was confused with the way they present counting coins. I actually do not like the system at all and the teacher was getting frustrated with the kids because they were giving her wrong answers. Well duh, they didn't get it either! haha I have a pic of an example for you. I taught everyday math during my student teaching and I like the way they present counting coins. How do you do it with your kids? What do you find helps? I really want to help my little guys out and not be so mean like the teacher I watched.
