This product includes excellent resources for teaching counting up to make change. The way it is presented includes using pennies and dimes ONLY in order to find change from $1.00. It also includes printables which students can choose what coins they use to pay for an item.

Page 2 is a table of contents explaining each resource
Page 3 next whole tens strip {a tool to help students find the next whole ten number}
Pages 4-6 Three different variations of a great worksheet in which students write the item they are "buying", how much it costs, show counting up to the next whole ten with pennies and then to a dollar in dimes and finally record the exact change
Pages 7-9 Student store worksheets for choosing items to buy {b&w and a customizable one}
Pages 10-16 Center including student directions, cards and recording sheet in color and black and white

I just taught two lessons using these resources and my students were SO successful I couldn't wait to share them.
