Money is a tough concept for my firsties so I am always looking for a way to get it across a little better. The money poem is a big help - but the Honey Bunny money song has been a HUGE hit. I first heard this song on a Teacher Tipster youtube link. Oh... and the dancing we do to this song!!!! Nothing like wiggling, giggling children. Here's the .pdf for them.
Money - so cute!

Grab and Graph Pack: A great way to practice sorting and graphing by various attributes. Students can complete graphs whole group, small group, or in a center. Students will sort the manipulatives and then complete the graph. Then students analyze their data and answer questions about their graph. There are 30+ graphs and response pages including blank versions for a years worth of graphing. All pictures are black and white to save you ink and make them easily reproducible.

Use a hundred chart to help students count coins. Have students place coins on the correct number. For instance, given 3 dimes and 1 nickel, students would place dimes on 10, 20, 30 and the nickel on 35. The last coin tells students how much money they have altogether.
