We started the year learning the importance and care pirates took with their loot. Because we also have a form of loot for our class store, we had to learn how to take care of our earnings by keeping it in our desk wallets, count our loot and fill out our weekly recording sheets for the store.
There is so much to learn about loot. We watched a video Ms. Rice made using her favorite apps- Sock Puppets & iMovies! Watch it below to learn about the coin's touch points and value!
These first two weeks we learned & reviewed the touch points on coins, identifying all our coins, made several foldables for our Math Notebooks, reviewed skip counted by 5's to 100, and combined large number of coins with dollars. We played World of Cents also!
We are almost ready to make change and run the classroom store!
Arrrrrgh! Pirates know a lot about Loot!
