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.
Print and laminate if desired.
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.
Playing card games is another great way to learn about money. The card games in this pack are all based on games that kids already know like Slap Jack, Memory and “War”.
