**Description:**Students will use "I Can List" Cards to review money value and then play a game involving the counting of money and making connections about coin value. Students will use Math Talk note cards as well when playing the game and record problems solved during the game on a loose leaf sheet of paper.

**Materials:**

- "I Can List" Cards for Money
- Tape
- Math Talk note cards with money problems listed involving comparing nickels, dimes, and quarters and other amounts of money.
- Play Coins (pennies, nickels, dimes, quarter)
- Loose leaf sheet of paper to record questions and answers from the game.

**Preparation:**Print, laminate and cut out "I Can List" Cards for Money for the kids to review before they play the ladder game. Create a large ladder on the floor using masking tape. The ladder should have at least 11 rungs. Next to the ladder have a fresh deck of Math Talk money problem note cards. * Print out for cards is below. Print, laminate and cut them out.

**Student Directions**:

- Review coin value on "I Can List" Cards for Money.
- To move up the latter you need to pull a fresh card from the top of the deck and solve the problem.
- Solve the money problem by putting the right amount of money on the ground or answering the question with a true or false answer when needed. Your opponent checks whether your answers are correct.
- If your partner says that you got the answer wrong, put the card at the bottom of the deck and
**move down**a rung. If you got it right, put the card at at the bottom of the deck and**move up**a rung. - Record the money questions from the cards and your answers on a sheet of paper to turn in. When you are answering questions on the sheet of paper involving money, draw circles with the cent value in the middle to show the coins you used.
- First person to reach the top of the ladder wins.

**Differentiation:**The money used to solve each problem is tallied up by each player then they compare who has more and buy how much. Show work by subtracting the two sums to show the difference.

**Assessment**: Formative: Students play ladder game and compete against one another for the right answer.

Summative: Students turn in record sheet. The sheet shows the questions and the answers in forms of drawings representing answers to the problems.
