Have Fun with @ABCyaGames Counting Money App (set up for your whole class!)


My Favorite App for Counting Money

ABCyaGames makes some of my absolute favorite interactive games for students.  The best part is - my kids just love their games, too!  Though ABCya is a sponsor of my site, I continue to be surprised by the games I find.  

I recently ran across their Counting Money App for $1.99 in iTunes.  I did not receive this app for free. I paid for it and can honestly tell you that I love it!

Like all of ABCya Games and Activities, this app is easy to use, effective, engaging, and addicting!  I'd like to show you more about why I can't wait to show this app to my students on Monday.

There are 3 important modes:

1.  Practice (practice counting money)
- Read and Make
- Listen and Make
- Count and Write

2.  Play Bingo (try your skills)

3.  Fish Tank (rewards)

Step 1: Download the app - click here


Step 2: Launch the App & Set it up


Enter your name and select your gender.


Design your avatar in 3 steps: top, middle, bottom.


With 30 profiles, you can set up your whole class.

Step 3: Practice your Counting Skills


Select between: Bingo, Practice, and Fish Tank

Practice


 Directions pop up and are read aloud for practice play.

Differentiate your Practice Levels:

- count to $1.00

Practice decimals in a calculator


Set up your practice to add the decimal notation into the calculator.

Step 4: Play BINGO and try our your Skills


Select your playing grid: easy, medium, difficult.


 Colorful fish mark your BINGO spot as you answer correctly.

Use your blank canvas to rearrange the coins to count them.

Use the drawing tool to add the coins together on the canvas.


The more you play, the more your win for your fish tank!



Step 5: Fill your Fish Tank


Kids love collecting items for their fish tank.

The object of Counting Money is to learn US currency and to count, add and subtract with it.

Counting Money utilizes US currency as virtual manipulatives to introduce money and apply it to mathematics. Three dynamic practice modes, fun BINGO games, and a customizable fish tank encourage children to add and subtract money in a variety of ways including word problems. Counting money has never been this fun and educational!
