Many of my second-grade students struggle with counting coins, do yours? I have some that must run some pretty amazing lemonade stands in the summer because counting money is not a problem. Other students though, quarters, nickels and dimes, oh my!
Here is where Counting Coins Practice with QR Code Task Cards come to the rescue
We have been playing around with QR Codes in our classroom quite a bit recently. Check out this post here where we used QR Codes to create an audio playback #supercool hallway display.
In our classroom, we use the Counting Coins QR Code Task Cards in many different ways, small groups, independent practice or during math centers. There are answer sheets, student recording sheets and because the task cards are self-checking, they are great for independent work.
To use the cards, students count the coins in the image and record their answer on the recording sheet. They can use any device that has a QR code scanner, which are free apps on mobile devices. The new iPhone and many other Apple devices will now scan a code with the camera app #easypeasy just focus on the QR code and it will read the image. The answer will pop up and students can self check their answers.
Included in the resource are 24 full-color task cards on a bright background. The coins are depicted in both heads and tails images which I print on white cardstock, and laminate. We use task cards often in the classroom for practice and math games. I store all my task cards in Iris photo boxes that you can find at Michaels. Make sure to stock up when they have a sale and use coupons because they can be spendy.
