Show me the MONEY! For this foldable, you have to cut each flap. In first grade I always prepared the books ahead of time, but I think 2nd graders could definitely handle making them on their own. On the inside, the students describe the coins and write how to make a dollar using the coins on the flap. It is great for coin recognition as well as counting money.
