Students will be able to solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies.

Lesson

Introduction (5 minutes)

• Explain to your students that today they will practice counting mixed coins and working on word problems with money.

Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (10 minutes)

• Review with students by sequence counting by 25, 10, and 5.
• Demonstrate rolling the two premade dice, and instruct your students to practice counting the amount shown.
• Each time an amount is counted, write that amount on the dry erase board.
• Think out loud as you find the sum of the two rolled amounts on the dry erase board.

Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (10 minutes)

• Group your students, and give each group a set of premade money dice.
• Explain that each student will get a turn at rolling the dice and say the sum of the coins shown.
• If they are correct, have them record that amount on their papers.
• If they are incorrect, explain that they lose that amount.

Independent Working Time (15 minutes)

• Give your students the Coin Challenge: City Trip worksheet to complete.

Extend

Differentiation

• Enrichment: Require students to count back the change to the original amount given. Have students create their own word problems from the school supply store or a recent purchase from home. Have them write each problem on an index card. Use these cards to play a board game, using the dice as a way to find out what they move to.
• Support: Make a note on the worksheet for each problem regarding how many coins are needed.

Review

Assessment (10 minutes)

• Instruct your students to illustrate and count 3 ways to make a dollar in their math journals.
• Have your students use at least 3 types of coins in each of the 3 combinations.
