Grade 1

Share the Headline Story with the class. To help children get started, pose questions such as, “How many dimes and pennies could Dana have?”, “How much money would she have if she had more dimes than pennies?”, “How much money would she have if she had more pennies than dimes?” or “What is the most amount of money she could have?”

Dana has some dimes and pennies. She has a total of 6 coins.

- It sounds like she could not have all dimes or all pennies.
- If there was 1 penny and 5 dimes that’s 51¢.
- It might be 42¢, 33¢, 24¢, or 15¢.
