Represent days of school with fewest number of coins possible.

Each week, student who has “calendar” job represents the number of schools days so far with the fewest coins (i.e. 50 would be two quarters)

Next to this, put a blank sheet of paper with a 50 (or whatever day of school it is) and invite kids to come up throughout the day and write different ways to show this number (i.e. 50×1, 5 dimes, 550-500, etc)

Keep a book of each day’s sheet and display it in the classroom.
