Visit our Money category on LearningGrids to find a variety of resources that support students’ understanding of basic money concepts. We have resources for naming and recognizing the values of coins, as well as counting and creating combinations of coins to match different totals.
Our U.S. Coins – Read a Book Clicker Book offers students clear graphics and simple text that reinforces the names of coins up to the value of a dollar. The related Talk, Sentence, Matching, and Custom Sets encourage children to recognize the values of the coins.
For problem solving and recording addition calculations with money, use the differentiated Money Targets Connect Sets. Students select from different coins, an addition and equals symbol, and the target number to create money calculations. These resources can also be printed and used as a table top activity.
There are also similar resources that focus on Canadian coins.
