## Unit 13- Coin Identification

This unit bundles student expectations that address identification of U.S. coins. According to the Texas Education Agency, mathematical process standards including application, tools and techniques, and justifications should be integrated (when applicable) with content knowledge and skills so that students are prepared to use mathematics in everyday life, society, and the workplace.

During this unit, students explore traditional and special edition pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. Students use sorting and classifying skills to discern distinguishing

features and identify U.S. coins by name. The emphasis in Kindergarten is on identification only and not on value, relationships, or counting collections.

## 1st Math District Performance Assessment for Kindergarten must be taken by January 15th!

I will email this out with specific instructions once it has the final approval!
