Pennies, Nickels, Dimes and Quarters

Each day we share 1, 2 or more coins for tzedakah.  
Morah Katie: Why do we share tzedakah?
Sroli: It 's a mitzvah.
Morah Katie: How is dropping coins in the can a mitzvah?
Abigail: It buys stuff for people.
Anton: People who don't have a lot.

Before we examine what the coins in our tzedakah collection box can purchase, we will be exploring the value of money in our classroom.

Our home living area is now a store and a bank.  
Once the banker has given us some money, we can spend it at the store. 
At The Gan store you can buy a variety of items such as an apple for 10 cents, a croissant for 50 cents or a sandwich for 1 dollar.

Evan: Sroli be sure to get the milk.
Sroli: Ok, I have enough money to  buy milk.
Sofia: We are buying food for our friends. Here is some money.
Clara: We are making lunch for them so we need to get food.
Amelia: I have 10 dollars for my 10 vegetables.
Farmer/ Morah Katie: Ok, thank you ladies come again!

Share them for tzedakah!
We peeked into our tzedakah container. We saw a lot of shared coins.
We learned that we could make one dollar in a variety of ways.
We can use 1 dollar bill.
We can use 4 quarters; they equal 1 dollar.
We can use 10 dimes; they equal 1 dollar.
We can use 20 nickels; they equal 1 dollar.
We have 10 groups of 10 pennies! We can 100 pennies! They equal a dollar.
We added up all the groups of money. 
We had 5 dollars of tzedakah! 
Sroli: OOOOH ooooh ooh! There's still a lot in there!
Natan: We can buy so much!
