Introducing young children to coins...
I set up a simple coin sort for the children to become familiar with the different types of American coins.
I added the tags with the corresponding words to bring in some literacy.
The children were first asked to sort the coins. We then discussed the names of all the coins and how much each one is worth.
We then played a game where I would give clues about each coin and the children would have to guess which one it was.
We then did some simple addition with the coins and discussed how many pennies make up a nickel, how many nickels make a dime and so on.

We also completed a money match up that I have added as a freebie! Please print yours out today! : )
