Teaching Money ideas -- GREAT for a math center. I would have all of the coins cut out first which will greatly reduce the time that students are doing an activity, this would probably need to be teacher/para/parent led.
Activity Mom found this money activity to help kids understand coin value. I'm not sure who created it? If you know, give a shout out! Kids add up coins to reach one dollar in this math game, great for visual learners. Click to download!
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.
