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:
If you like the "Show Me" boards, the Pirate Treasure's Coin Counting Unit has these boards in a pirate theme. This pack is loaded with ideas for learning and practicing to count coins. The coins in the pack include: quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies.
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy coin counting,
