Free Counting Money Clip Cards for Coins

I don’t know about your kids, but right now my kids are slightly obsessed with saving money to be able to buy their own toys. Mostly because I told them I wasn’t going to by any more tiny stuffed animals… So they have a big bag of coins that they have been sourcing from anyone who drop them a penny or two. It works for me because they don’t realize that they are doing math every time they get the bag out to count their treasure. Despite the growing trend to use a debit card instead of cash, it’s still very important that children learn how to use cash and coins. The first step in that is learning to count coins. These free counting money clip cards for coins are a perfect way to review coin counting with kids.

Materials needed for Free Counting Money Clip Cards:

Paper and/or card stock

Laminating pouches (highly recommended if not using card stock)

Clothes pins

To prepare:

Print and laminate if desired.

To use:

Have students place a clothes pin on the number that is missing from the list of numbers on the card.

These cards have up to four easy to count coins to help kids learn to skip count and add on from common numbers.

Along with these clip cards there are some great books to read to learn about money. I have noticed with my kids that when we read things in books, it helps establish the things that I’m teaching because the book becomes the authority on the topic instead of “Mom”.
