The Antenna Strategy is a tool I used with my 2nd grade students. They understood the value of each coin, but when the coins were all grouped together, they had trouble counting them. If your students can effectively count by 5's, then they will be able to use this strategy to help them count coins. Included in this resource is an 11 slide PowerPoint Presentation that teaches the strategy. Also, a PDF file that includes 5 printable worksheets (with answer key) that allows students to practice counting only nickels, only dimes, only quarters, a combination of nickels, dimes, and quarters, and a combination of nickels, dimes, quarters, and pennies.
