I would use this lesson in my classroom.  I like the way the slides are organized, colorful, and easy to follow.  The use of lots of visuals is very helpful for students who learn best this way.   One thing that was a little tricky for me was the way the pictures of the nickels, dimes, and quarters were basically the same size on my screen.  Other than that, this is a great resource for teaching about money.  The opportunities for practice that are included in this lesson will definitely help to reinforce these concepts for students.

I like how this StAIR incorporates the UDL princple of text to speech allowing students to listen to the slide when they click on the speaker (although I was having a hard time with this).  This is important for lower elementary students since they are at varying reading levels.  The flow of the learning and strategies are great.  Students first get a review of coins, then practice identifying coins, then use their knowledge to add coins together.  The helpful hints were great when students answered incorrectly.  It was just enough of a hint to keep frustration down, but still allowed students to add the values together. This StAIR was very easy to use. I would use it in my own classroom.
