## Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Introduction to Money - Section 3: Introducing the Trading Game

Although I introduced the quarter during the poster activity, I am waiting to introduce it in the trading game for a couple of reasons.  First of all, the 25s count is developmentally challenging for students.  Some students may already have it and will have an opportunity to use quarters in future lessons.  The second reason is the students know the 1s, 5,s and 10s counts from work that we have done throughout the year.  This will allow them to focus on the coins and not have to tackle the underlying concepts of the counts.
