I use this simple but effective file folder coin sort for several different activities. First, I use the front with just the names of the coins and have students (in small groups) sort the coins by name. Then, on the inside I have them sort the coins by their amount. Last, I will have them put 10¢ in the 10¢ circle but they can’t use a dime. After all my small group instruction I put these folders and coins in a station for independent practice.
