This resource is aligned to Common Core standards 2.OA.1, 2.NBT.2, 2.NBT.5, and 2.MD.8. This resource is a lesson plan that deals with identifying different amounts of coins under $1.00. This lesson has students taking away money using the story Alexander Who Used to be Rich Last Sunday. The lesson should be used after students have been exposed to money and are able to find different combinations of coin amounts. As the teacher reads the story, the students should be writing and solving the mathematical expressions using the cent symbols. Students should also practice skip-counting the money. Another thing that could be done as a follow up activity is to allow students to use whole dollar amounts to show how money could be spent.
