FREE Coin Combination Book
Have you ever used a “waterfall book” in your classroom or homeschool? I love the way these books look when they are put together and they are super fun to use. I created this waterfall book for my students to work on coin combinations.
Making the Books
First, I printed the template which is FREE for you to download and use. Once the pages were printed, I laid them down so the words were showing like in the picture below:
I then folded the pages backward until it looks like this:
Then I stapled the top and the book was ready for my students.
Using the Book
To complete this activity we used coin stamps. If you don’t have stamps you can use coin stickers or simply have students draw circles with the coin value or the letter that begins the coin’s name.
Tell students they are going to create two different coin combinations for each value written on each page of the book. Have students flip to the page and use the stamps to create the amount on the written.
Students work through the book until they have completed all the pages.
For students who are struggling, have them create the coin combinations with real coins first and then copy their combination to the page.
When students complete the pages they can open up their book to find 6 more pages where they can write their own amount and create the combinations using the coin stamps.
(Yep, there are some coins missing from 88 and 18 cents. This was corrected by the student after the picture was taken. :))
Not only did the students enjoy this activity, but it was a wonderful assessment tool. If you would like to use this book in your classroom or home, click below to download.
