These task cards have 20 money word problems in the form of riddles. Each money riddle gives students practice with:

  • dollars (up to $25) and all coins

Some of the money riddles in this resource are multi-step word problems for 2nd grade students.

With the New Easel Activities Tool included with this resource, your students can type directly onto each task card through Google Classroom!

This feature has already been added, but you can edit it for your distance learning model.

I’ve written these money word problems to give students practice with understanding the numerical value of different dollars and coin amounts.

The goal isn’t just for students to identify coins, but to be able to fluently add, subtract, and use money in different situations.
