I created this Ice Cream Parlor Center to help them. It seems that half of my kids are really good at counting money while the other half become confused when using pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. Their level of confidence drops. To help each this, I created this center with the purpose of having the children make the amount shown two ways. This way, they can rely on a familiar method but still practice using quarters; their weakness. To help them be successful, our mini lesson will focus on how to make 25¢.

BTW- Have you joined the Math Work Stations Blog Party? I began to implement Math Work Stations in my classroom. Here is a Sneak Peek of the labels I am creating to go with Chapter 3 Getting Started With Math Work Stations. Just copy on Avery 8163 labels and they will be ready to use. Be sure to stop by next week! In the meantime, don't forget to visit my blogging friend.
