Ideas on Using the Widget
Use for a Class Test or Quiz
Instead of using printed worksheets with black and white copies of money, use the Count With Money smart board tool to test your students' understanding of concepts. Since the tool allows you to display the money in color at the front of the class, it will be easier for them to distinguish between the different denominations. You can also use this tool to review the answers for the test once it's finished. Just return the correct amount of currency to your whiteboard then count the sum together.
Use to Teach How Much of One Denomination is Required to Equal Another Denomination
For example, in U.S. dollars, you can help your class understand that it takes four $20 bills to equal $100. It takes two $10 bills to equal $20, two $5 bills to equal $10, and five $1 bills to equal $5. You can then show how many $10 bills it takes to make up a $100 and so on. Since the Gynzy tool allows you to display different denominations side by side, you can show exactly how many bills (or coins) are required to reach another denomination.
Use to Teach Counting Patterns
Using the Gynzy Count With Money tool is also a great way to help your students understand counting by 5's and 10's. Simply display the desired bills and then point to each as you count together as a class. Since $2 bills (in U.S. currency) are also available, you can even help your class learn to count by 2's.
The opportunities to help your class succeed with currency and number patterns are almost endless when you use the Gynzy Count With Money tool in your daily lesson plans.
