PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are your students having a difficult time with counting coins? The Magic Money method has worked for me for the last 9 years of teaching money to 1st and 2nd graders. This download includes:

- a chart that students might place in their homework/classroom folders with realistic, dual-sided pictures of each coin, coin values, a chant for each coin, and the placement of the dots that will aid them in counting the coins.

- a one-sheet parent explanation of how the Magic Money system works, and how to use it to help their child become successful at counting coins at home

- a hundred chart that specifically aids children in becoming fluent at counting by 5's (a necessary sub-skill for using this method)

-a coin counting worksheet sample with answer key

-a sample word problem page

This method will work for the vast majority of your students. Don't worry about them relying on the dots. With time, they will begin to chunk larger values together until they are counting coins in a more traditional way.

If you find this download helpful, this product is part of a larger download "Counting Coins Made Easy with Differentiated Materials" that you can find HERE.

I also offer an ActivInspire flipchart to accompany these learning materials HERE.

I am embarrassed to say that I have never heard of this method for teaching money! It is going to make teaching money to my second graders so much more fun and successful! Thank you soooo much!
On  February 15, 2014Nicole Rios answered:
You are so welcome. I would not teach money to my 1st or 2nd graders without this in my box of tools. I hope you find it successful for your students as well.
