A set of forty (40) flash cards that will help your students practice their skills at counting money. Coins include: quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. There is also a one dollar and five dollar bill.
Using these cards in various ways can facilitate learning and mix up the activity.
Use the single units are identification and recall.
Use the combination cards and sort the cards to illustrate various ways one can make 25 cents, etc.
Place a finger on the bottom amount as you show the card to the student, after the answer is given, you can verify it is correct by removing your finger. They can work in pairs and practice together. For more advanced students or as their skill increases, ask them to draw two cards and add the sums!
Another more advanced pratice is to sort the higher values in one pile and the lower values in a second pile. Draw one card from each and ask them to subtract or "Make Change" if a purchase was made. You can print as many of the single units as you desire.
The coins are black and white to help save on colored ink. Another benefit, this may require closer observation skills in the identification of the coin. For some beginners, you may want to ask them to color in the coins lightly with copper for pennies and silver for the others.
