This is a very important unit since this is the only Cluster that involves developing an understanding of money and requires the students to solve problems involving various denominations of coins and bills. Since this is the first time money is introduced formally as a Standard, students will need many experiences with coin recognition and determining the value of coins before using coins to solve problems. Students are expected to record money amounts using the $ and ¢ symbols. This unit also continues the work begun in first grade with time, expecting students to tell and write time from both an analog and digital clock to the nearest five minute interval using a.m. and p.m.
A question is essential when it stimulates multi-layered inquiry, provokes deep thought and lively discussion, requires students to consider alternatives and justify their reasoning, encourges re-thinking of big ideas, makes meaningful connections with prior learning, and provides students with opportunities to apply problem-solving skills to authentic situations.

The lesson plan(s) have been written with specific standards in mind. Each model lesson plan is only a MODEL - one way the lesson could be developed. We have NOT included any references to the timing associated with delivering this model. Each teacher will need to make decisions related ot the timing of the lesson plan based on the learning needs of students in the class. The model lesson plans are designed to generate evidence of student understanding.
This chart indicates one or more lesson plans which have been developed for this unit. Lesson plans are being written and posted on the Curriculum Management System as they are completed. Please check back periodically for additional postings.

Students solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and ¢ symbols appropriately.
The lesson seed(s) have been written with specific standards in mind. These suggested activity/activities are not intended to be prescriptive, exhaustive, or sequential; they simply demonstrate how specific content can be used to help students learn the skills described in the standards. Seeds are designed to give teachers ideas for developing their own activities in order to generate evidence of student understanding.

Tell & Write Time from Analog and Digital Clocks
CCSC Alignnment: PK.CC.7
Students use plastic fruit to make sets that match the quantity of the teacher’s set. Students use one-to-one correspondence to compare their sets with that of the teacher and other students.
Working with Money
CCSC Alignnment: 2.MD.C.8
Students use combinations of skip-counting by ones, fives, tens, and twenty-fives in order to prepare for counting mixed currency.
