Common Core Reminder - Time and Money
Please remember that your Grade Level Expectations are the MINIMUM requirements. So often we only focus on the activities and lessons within our grade level curriculum guide and forget about important concepts that should be weaved through our math instruction. Time and money should be taught/reviewed at EVERY grade level. Number Talks and Word Problems are an excellent time to include these important concepts and skills.
Use coins as landmark numbers and skip counting.
Money is a natural fit with decimals (and even fractions).
Using an analog clock for fractions is great. Elapsed time should also be included at all grade levels.
