I use the 5-E model to lesson planning. I have no pic of my engage piece because it was too difficult to play with the kids and take pics. So...I'll explain it. I got the cutest little dice erasers from the $1 Target bin. I poured out all my coin manipulatives. Each student (groups of 4) rolled their die. I picked one person to roll for quarters, a different student for dimes, and so on. Every student had to model the amount and come up with the total amount. We discuss..."What if we had no dimes, but had to make the same amount?"
I explain the center. Btw...this is what I edited in the directions. The sets are made up of four cards (pictorial representation, counting by denomination, total amount, and word form). The first activity for the center, I would have students match the pictorial representation with the word form. Let them practice that for a few days. The next activity, we would match the pictorial with adding the various denominations for a few days. We would move on to matching the pictorial with the total amount. Lastly, they would match the entire set of four. A challenge option is taking away the pictorial model and having students match the word form and total.
So here's the pictures....
