We are in Unit 10 of the second grade curriculum and there have been lots of great money games. My problem is that we do not have enough coins to play the games all at once. I would love to teach the games like money exchange to the whole class and let everyone play at once, but we do not have enough dimes and pennies to do that. I have created centers for all of the games, but we still can't have all the money games out at once because we need different coins in different places. When students brought in money at the beginning of the year for their tool kits, they did not bring in enough for these games. I use play money a lot, but that is my own personal set and there is still not enough. I don't understand why EDM has all of these great games, but does not provide the coins to play them. I might have missed something in past trainings (I did most of my training on the 4th grade curriculum), so I was wondering if there were any good tips out there??? The games are great, my kids love them, I just need management ideas for the money!
