    To assist students with coin recognition I play the "Sock Game". This is how you play:
    -Begin by reviewing coins and having kids describe each coin in detail.
    -Put one of each coin in a sock.
    -Have kids partner up.
    -One student reaches in and gets one coin out of the sock. THe student must say to his/her partner, "I have a ____, it is worth____ cents".
    -Then the student puts the coin back in the sock.
    -THe partner then has to try to find the coin just by feeling the peeking.
    - If the student retrieves the correct coin he/she gets a cube.
    -THe student with the most cubes wins.

    *I begin by having this be a lesson, for the rest of the unit the students play as a warm-up.
