Pet Shop Coin Game

Here is a game I made that I am hoping will become a class favorite so they get lots of practice with counting coins. The object of the game is to be the first to buy enough animals to fill your pet shop.
I forgot to take a pic of the die darn it but it is in the download, too.
 I used a divided fruit tray for the bank. {Note to Mr. B~see I do use those containers I save!}

If you like it please let me know because this one took me forever to create!

  4. OMG!! I finally found someone else who uses those fruit trays! I swear I'm going to show this post to many, many people (my mother, sister, etc.) who constantly make fun of me for saving EVERYTHING! tee hee!

  14. I love this idea! I don't know what it is about "firsties" but I know they ALL (even the boys) love to play pet shop! This will definitely be a hit!And I am trying to teach them about money! Thank you!

  15. This is great! Firsties LOVE animals, and money skills are essential, this game is sure to be a winner! I plan to do this in centers, and will have a parent helper this first time. After that, I think they'll be able to play independently for additional practice.

    Thank you so much! :)

  16. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!
    I even had a parent send me in a fruit tray this week! AMAZING
    How can I get this?
    Is there anyway I can get it without having to let Scribd use my facebook?

  17. This is too cute! They will playing this until the end of the year during math centers for sure!
    What font did you use for the label and the top of the gameboard (the colorful one). I see this a lot, but don't know where to find it.
    Thanks,

  18. This is precious!! Thanks so much for sharing. I will be happy to donate through the paypal button, but maybe you SHOULD think about putting SOME of your things in the TPT store. There's a reason that people go there and search a topic. Just something to think about.

  26. Love this idea! I'm a new follower! I am hoping open a TPT store in a couple of weeks, but I still want to share SOME things for free to help out my fellow teachers...something to think about.
