## First Grade Coin Identification Math Practice

Get your first grade students thinking about money! This interactive math activity from iKnowIt.com helps little ones practice identifying the names and values associated with U.S. coins. Here are the objectives of this first grade math game:

• Students will identify the name of the coin shown.
• Students will assign the correct monetary value of the coin shown.
• Students will choose which coin matches the given monetary amount.
• Students will choose which coin matches the given coin name.

After working through this basic coin identification activity, students will gain confidence and proficiency with U.S. coin recognition.

Plenty of teaching tools are tucked inside this engaging first grade math activity. For example, if students get stuck on a question, they may opt to click on the "Hint" button. The hint consists of a written or pictorial clue that will help them with U.S. coin identification without given away the answer. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page shows the correct answer, accompanied by an easy-to-follow explanation, so children can learn from prior mistakes as they progress through the math lesson. Questions in this math activity are presented in various formats, including multiple choice and drag-and-drop format, providing engagement and interest for children by facilitating interaction with the material in different ways.

Additional built-in lesson features help students make the most out of each math practice session. For example, students can click on the speaker icon to hear the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This is an excellent resource for ESL/ELL students and students who are auditory learners. A progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen shows students how many questions they have answered so far out of the total number of questions in the math lesson, and a score-tracker beneath that allows students to view how many points they have earned for correct answers. These features are designed to enhance the math practice experience for elementary students.
