Counting money (coins) up to one dollar is the focus of these task cards. Each of the 32 task cards includes a mix of coins (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters) for students to count and determine the total amount. The highest amount any card goes to is $1.00. The task cards are designed to go from easier (naming the coin and the amount) to harder (9 coins on a task card and students write the amount).
These task cards will work well at math centers, for independent or partner work, or with the whole class using a game like Scoot.
This set can be printed in color or grayscale and can be laminated and used again and again. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. It works well to keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring. The answer key is typed into 2 “task cards.” This makes it easy to leave in the center for self-checking and for task card storage. Keep the answers with the task cards!
