MAKE THE DATE: This is from our old calendar board. I just added a strip of velcro onto it so that we can display the date in coins. For example, on the photo to the left it is April 28th. So, there is 28 cents displayed on the board. Notice the extra coins hanging on a strip of velcro on the side. FYI, there are velcro dots on the back of the coins so that the kids can practice with real money.
Place Value Cups. Use the cups to (1) understand place value (2) practice counting forward and backward (3) learn the names of large numbers (4) decompose numbers to expanded form. I would either label the cups 'ones' 'tens' etc. or add a comma cup or decimal point cup
