Language Arts, Math

Title – Money- “Alexander, Used to be Rich Last Sunday”

By – Tracy

Primary Subject – Math

Secondary Subjects – Language Arts

Grade Level – 2-3

Pass out one dollar worth of coins to each student in your class

Begin to read

“Alexander, Used to be Rich Last Sunday”

to the class. Have them begin with their dollar and some bus tokens…you can make all of these.

As Alexander loses money, have the students take away each amount with him.

They are left with just bus tokens in the end, if they did it right.

It’s a fun lesson that my students LOVE!!

If you have a student that needs extra help, pair him up with another student and have them work the problem together!
