If your students are any like the students I've taught over the years, they probably struggle with counting coins, finding equivalent values, and making change. Even the brightest students often struggle with these skills!

This 200+ page pack is chocked full of teacher tips, how-to's, activities, and resources to teach to those three difficult skills using three tried and true strategies: "hairy" coins for counting, brace maps for equivalent values, and 100's charts for counting and making change.

PLEASE view the preview file for a full listing of all that is included. If you have any questions about what is included or whether this pack is right for you and your students, please contact me via the "Q&A" tab below.

This product is Common Core and Virginia SOL-aligned.
