Coin Counting

This is a Math Center Activity I use to reinforce coin counting.  
How to Play?
  1. Student rolls the die (wooden cube w/ plastic coins super-glued on each side) 
  2. Student stamps the coin which was rolled
  3. Student does this 3X
  4. Student adds up the value of each coin and puts their answer in the pig

The boxes below each stamped coin (on the recording sheet) can be used to put the value of each coin or then can add the value as they go.  Students who have difficulty adding the values can put tally marks or dots instead of the number.

All coin stamps are stored in ice cube trays from the Dollar Tree.
They can choose if they want to stamp the head or the tail of the coin.
