The hardest part of learning to count mixed groups of coins always seems to be the switch from multiples of five (nickels, dimes, quarters) to pennies. I created this 100 chart to give students a visual reminder, with copper-colored, penny-sized circles for counting by ones, silver-colored, nickel-sized circles for counting by fives, and silver-colored, dime-sized circles for counting by tens. There are quarter-sized circles, too.
Download, print, and laminate (if desired) for durability.
Included in your download are two dozen snack-themed cards for use with the 100 chart and real or replica coins you provide. Students count mixed coins to "buy" the colorful snacks--some healthy, some purely indulgent--pictured on each card. You can also use the pictures to sneak a little enjoyable, effortless vocabulary practice into your math lesson.
