Coin templates are available in a choice of sizes for penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and half-dollar and are great tools for teaching equivalencies and general financial literacy. Offering a selection of templates in the classroom publishing center encourages students to select the right template for the concept they are trying to communicate.
Publishing centers are used K-12, in all content areas, and they are student-directed. They provide printed tools to enhance visual literacy including communicating the following: location through maps, sequential events through timelines, and measurement through tools such as beakers, thermometers, and clocks. Publishing-center graphics are available for students to select and use at any point during projects, notetaking, journaling, and notebooking activities. When students learn to use these visual graphics to meet their personal needs they become tools for differentiation. Publishing Centers are cross-curricular; it is not uncommon for maps and timelines to be used in science and rain gauges to be used in Social Studies. Our publishing center pages are available as downloads and are formatted with anchor tabs for notebooking.
