Digital Resources are invaluable during this time, and this counting quarters activity is a fun one. Meant to be done after reading “Lemonade in the Winter”, it will get children counting quarters with a lemonade stand theme.
Boom Cards do not require any prep-work once you have an account set up. Just download, give to a student, and you are ready to go. And the biggest blessing is that you can get a grade without grading it yourself!!!! YEA!!!!!
If you are not familiar with Boom Cards, this post will answer almost all your questions.
Learning Math While Reading
Sometimes it is nice to be able to grab a read a loud and teach a math lesson while reading. Well, this counting quarters activity is based on the book “Lemonade in Winter”. It is a delightful book about two kids selling Lemonade, and they count quarters throughout the book.
I would always suggest that you read it to your children, but if you don’t have the book, you can watch a video of it being read.
Counting Quarters Activity
Now it is time for some fun.
I’m loving these cards. They are so interactive, fun, and give immediate feedback. AND as a teacher or homeschool mom you can see what grade they made. You don’t have to grade the slides yourself! LOVE this.
This activity is a simple one, and focuses on children counting quarters, just like the kids in “Lemonade in Winter” did.
Here are a couple things your children will do with these slides.
One activity simply has children figuring out what the quarters are worth and choosing a different way to represent them.
Another slide shows lemonade for sale at 50 cents a piece. It then asks how you could pay for the lemonade.
Another activity shows how much lemonade was sold, and the students are asked to figure out how much money they made.
And of course, if your student clicks on the wrong answer it will tell them. Then they get a chance to try again.
They are super fun and easy to use!!!!! Enjoy this counting quarters activity.
