Show Me the Money Boards Freebie

 Show Me Boards
Free “Show Me” Boards are great during your small group time. These boards will give you a quick view of who is understanding how to count coins and who is not.
Give each student a Show Me the Money Board and some classroom or real coins. Instruct the students to show you the amount of money indicated in each box using the coins. Students should use the least amount of coins to show the amount of money in each box. The small number in parentheses tells the number of coins that are needed.
For beginning students, have them count out money in the way they know. Then encourage them to exchange coins (2 nickels can be exchanged for 1 dime and so on).This pack includes 6 Show Me Boards (and 6 black and white copies too). Here are what the boards look like:
