This is designed to help young learner's practice counting money at home and at school. Once they have learned the value of the coins, students can practice making coin amounts in 2 different ways.
For homework, have students work with a parent to come up with 2 different ways to represent the same value. Then have parents sign and return the homework at the end of the week. It helps parents see where their child is performing in terms of counting money and provides the additional help that is so needful for these students!
