Does This Make Cents? #edtech

I've been thinking about adding some structure to this 365 Web 2.0 project and maybe making Friday night, fun night. Specifically, fun tools for younger students. Now notice I said tools NOT TOYS. Learning can be fun lest we forget. That being said let's start Friday Fun Nights with a Money Counting Game that is located at http://www.kidsmathgamesonline.com  This is a great tool for students learning about money values.  Basically there are 5 coins (a penny, nickel, dime, quarter and half dollar).  They provide a number of values and ask you to choose the right number of coins to match that number. There is also a timer that you have to complete all of the totals within.  After getting to level 4 I actually started to struggle to beat the timer! It's fun, addicting and challenging even for an adult.
