Money Games

I realized that Monkey is still a bit weak on money. Rather weak, in fact. We've done it before, but it's been quite some time and so we're practicing place value with coins this week. I got the rods out and made a "key" for him, so if he forgets he can look and see: a penny =1, a nickle=5, dimes=10, and quarters=25. I think I'm going to get some rubber bands out next time to bundle the rods into units of 25, rather than just individual rods adding up to 25. And then, although it's hard to see the movie I made, I also mirror what he's doing with coins in the rods. It seemed to work out pretty well.
