November Calendar Suggestion

Here is my suggestion for calendar time for the month of November:  Create a pattern of coins.
  I used plastic money and just double-stick taped it to the laminated calendar.
As each new coin is introduced, a new piece of information can be discussed about that particular coin. 

 I think it would also be interesting to use the copy machine and make some copies of different state quarters and not just use the same traditional quarter over and over. 

You could also use a pattern of coins fronts and coin backs.

Mathematically talented student suggestion: They could keep a running total of the value of the coins.

What pattern do you see? Coins that represent an increasing value-1cent, 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents

Good class discussion: As the coin increases in value, does it's size also increase?

What would you discuss in your class if you used this calendar for November?
