Coin Identification and Value

My newest free download on Teachers Pay Teachers is a work mat for coin identification and value. Children identify and match pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters, show their value by stacking pennies, then¬†show new ways to make ten and twenty-five cents. This makes a great math center!¬†Reminds me of a song I once heard…

Common Coins

I often find myself using the tune of an existing song combined with my own set of lyrics to help my students remember various reading or math concepts. My latest creation might remind you of Oh, My Darling Clementine, but the intention is to help kids learn the names and values of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters (those are the most common coins). Maybe you’d like to sing along!
