Counting mixed groups of coins can often be a struggle for students. Using the "hairy money" method, students draw "hairs" on their coins to represent 5 cent. So a nickel gets 1 hair, a dime gets 2, a quarter gets 5, and a penny is bald. This allows students to easily count a group of mixed coins without having to do addition and makes them feel more comfortable counting coins when they're not all grouped by denomination. All coins are shown with both heads and tails sides to help students recognize a coin without issue, no matter which side they are shown.
