The Trading Game: Money Style

I was so excited for my Presidents Day long weekend!
Saturday was great! I got to meet Kelley from Buggy for Second
Grade and she is such a sweetheart!
I also happened to win her giveaway a few weeks ago and she
made me this lovely board for my classroom.
 
 
 She customized it to match my decor and everything!
 
Saturday evening I had a girls night with my 2 year old 
and we had fun riding the carousel at our local mall and shopping.

Then, Sunday I came down with sore throat, that turned to congestion,
that turned into a few days of a fever that won't go away! Boo!
So, most of my long weekend was spent being sicko but that's
how it goes, I guess :)
 
Since I'm stuck at home I thought I would finally update
you guys with a few new games I made.

The first is a money trading game, a lot like the
chip trading game I described here.



This game is VERY simple but powerful for the kids
because it helps them to make those connections that 5 pennies = 1 nickel,
2 nickels = 1 dime, etc...
Each student has a gameboard and there is one student in each group
that I select to be the banker.
I love using these chip trays to organize manipulatives!
Gotta love the Dollar Tree! :)
 
 
Students roll dice and collect coins from the banker
and keep making trades.
I call this game, "Race to a Quarter!"
 
The other game I made so my students could simply have
practice using coins to show different amounts.
It's called, "Piggy Race", because they are trying to
get to the piggy in the middle first to be the winner.
 

 
This game is also very simple, but I think that's how it
needs to be to work for all learners.
 
 You can find these games in my TpT store HERE
for $1.50 each.
 
The first 2 people to guess correctly what big game I'll be watching
on Saturday will win both of these!!!
 
hint: see this post

Have a fabulous week!

    2. Actually, there is a KCKS AND a KCMO. However, most people would assume that when you just say KC, that you would be referring to KCMO because it is A LOT bigger.

  9. We used something similar to this with special education students--the only thing we did differently was trace the coins in the columns--so they could see that needed to fill all of the spots in the column before they could trade.

  104. The eligible securities brought into the demat account, as declared or designated by the new retail investor, will automatically be subject to lock-in during its first year, unless the new retail investor specifies otherwise and for such specification, the new retail investor will submit a declaration in Form B indicating that such securities are not to be included within the above limit of investment. If the investment is made in the beginning months of a financial year, the inves tment may be locked in for more than three years. Since the i nvestor is given the flexibility (of no lock - in) for around 90 days in each of the flexible lock - in period, this extra lock - in period in the first year is sort of compensated for. The period of two years beginning immediately after the end of the fixed lock - in period shall be cal led the ‘Flexible Lock - in' period.

    Platform or System Malfunction: Imagine your plight if you have a large position and are unable to close a trade because of a platform malfunction or system failure, which could be anything from a power outage to an Internet overload or computer crash. This category would also include exceptionally volatile times when orders such as stop-losses do not work. For instance, many traders had tight stop-losses in place on their short Swiss franc positions before the currency surged on January 15, 2015. However, these proved ineffective because liquidity dried up even as everyone stampeded to close his or her short franc positions.
