Money Worksheets Great for Review or Assessment


I've added another product to my TPT Store today. Still trying to get to my 50 products in by the big Teacher's Appreciation Sale in the beginning of May. I don't know that I'll make it but I want to get as many as I can.

So, I have put together 5 worksheets on money for you.  Money is actually not a standard in First Grade Common Core. However, it is on the SAT 10 test they have to take at the end of the year (in a few weeks really) and so we have taught it. It's a great life skill besides a learning skill so I think it's important that they start learning it early.

These worksheets include 2 Write the Right Amount where they are given a group of coins that they have to count and write the amount.  Then there is a matching sheet where they draw a line to the correct amount for the group of coins.  I have included a Show Another Way where they are given a coin or two and they are to draw the coins to show 2 other ways to make that amount. Lastly, there is a problem solving sheet with four word problems.

Answer Keys are included for all worksheets. This will be great for homework, extra practice, review or assessment after a money unit.  Many ways to use these.  I hope they make your life a little easier.

I'm still working on a freebie for the 100 likes on my Facebook page!!  If you haven't liked it go here and like it!  Going Frananas Facebook Page!

Hope you will check this out and please follow my store and if you purchase something rate it for credits for free stuff.  It adds up quickly!

Have a great Sunday!

Monster Themed Write the Room Long Vowel Set

Hello All,

I think you'll really like this set of Monster themed Write the Room Activity.  Post them around the room and let your kids hunt for the pictures and write the word.  They will get great practice at writing these long vowel words. Most patterns are included and so they will get a wide variety of word patterns to get practiced.

Here's a preview for you!

I love to provide activities to my kids that allow movement while they are learning.  Firsties require movement to keep them engaged. What a better way than to Write the Room?

I hope you'll check this out.  I don't think you'll be disappointed.

New Reading Comprehension Skill -- Searching for the Cause and Effect Activities

Hello All,

I put in a new product in the store last night.  We are getting ready to cover Cause and Effect again. So, I was trying to make some activities that would extend and expand what we've already covered with Cause and Effect.  So, here is what I came up with!

There are 3 Anchor charts. This one and of course one for Effect and then one for Signal Words.
Then there is the standard match the cause with effect task cards. There are 2 sets. One is shown below and the other is the same except they say either Cause or Effect on them.  If some of your learners are struggling or need more support this differentiates the activity for you.

A "worksheet" for extra practice or an end of unit assessment.

Next, to extend the learning with the task cards and help students understand that a cause and an effect of one event can cause more than one things to happen. So, they pick a cause or effect from the matching cards and then write another effect for it.

Then for these effect cards students will name 2 causes for each effect.  

Then there are 3 different writing activities included within all of these activities.

I think this is a pretty comprehensive unit with many choices in activities.  I think they are somewhat different than other packets available. It's in the store already and it's only $3.50. There are many different levels of difficulty for all levels of learners.  I hope you'll go to my STORE.
