A Penny A Day

Math focus:  money
(penny & nickel)


We add a penny each day. 
When we have 5 pennies, we can trade for a nickel.
(Thanks to Tommie and Computers
for Education for our magnetic money.)

This week we worked on making patterns using pennies and nickels.
We made a pattern and then separated it into it's units.

We still need more practice sorting.
We sorted our shapes before working in our journals.
