After this class, learners will be able to identify and distinguish between nickels, pennies and dimes. They will be able to tell how much each coin is worth, and how many of each they would need to have a dollar.
Students will need to have an assortment of nickels, dimes and pennies. They will specifically need for the reading of the book: 7 dimes, 4 nickels and 10 pennies to "spend" Alexander's money.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed informally by observation.
