Reflection: Student Ownership Making Change - A review - Section 1: Counting change using ten frames


Making Change  

In the video for this activity you will see the student place the new coins (the change) on the edges of her ten frame to separate them from the price of the object. Several students developed this on their own and I quickly made note of it for other students. 

It made perfect sense to set the coins off to the side so students could easily see which ones they were adding on for change. This was their strategy, but one I will teach other students in the future. As I checked for their understanding, I learned something new myself.

This student had looked for structure in the use of tens frames to solve the problem. She was able to see that she could set those coins aside and they would be easily visible. MP7 says that students should look for and make use of structure which is clearly what this child demonstrated as she set up her tens frame to make change.
