I have always found that students either understand money counting pretty quickly – or they really struggle with it for awhile before it finally clicks. Having lesson plans that help you to relay those concepts to children are important as those who take a little longer to grasp that topic will need various different ways to learn it.
Luckily, Classroom Freebies has you covered with 10 different free lessons for you to pick up right now!
Grab this freebie of several pages for second grade. Includes a coin equivalent chart for student reference and several flap books where students record different ways to show money amount. Could be used to differentiate with first grade and third grade as well.
This fun set of outer space color by code pages has 6 different skills covered that range in level from K-2. These pages can be used as morning work, language arts or math centers, or fun extras during a science unit on space.
Diffy is a fun and intriguing math game that requires subtraction, logic, and pattern recognition to win. It can be played with whole numbers, negative numbers, fractions, and money. This game is challenging for both kids and adults!
You can play Diffy using the document camera with the whole class, or have students complete their own Diffy games either in worksheet format or at a center with laminated wipe-off sheets.
This freebie includes 45 cards to play the game war (also called compare.) Students will count the coins (quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies) on each card and determine who has the greater amount. This can easily be used in math centers, math tubs, small groups, guided math groups, choice time and for fast finishers. Just print, laminate and cut the cards apart.
Even includes actual pictures of how the author stores the centers!

Ice cream is pretty motivating to most kids (me, too) so using sundaes for money addition is not a bad strategy! Just don’t let your kids make them like this in real life or you’ll have ice cream dripping all over your kitchen table to the floor!
