Counting Money using Visuals

I love these visuals from Tinsnips! (Sorry, the link no longer works - let me know if you can find these links and I'll fix it!!!) So easy to prepare too, all I needed to do was print them off and stick them in page protectors. I keep telling myself I'll laminate them...but it's almost been two years and it's still working great just like this!

As you can see, the visuals include coins the actual size of the coins, so students can place the coin on the correct spot while counting.

A great, practical way to practice skip counting by 5s, 10s, and 25s! (Sorry, I didn't get a picture of the dimes sheet)

So, tinsnips has visuals for counting nickels, dimes, and quarters. You can download copies for your classroom on their site here (and might want to check out the rest of the site while you're there!)

And no, I don't usually have this much money in my classroom (see the first picture with all of the bills? not usually how we roll), we were counting the money that our school has raised for autism awareness this month by selling ribbons. How awesome right? We counted over $670 raised so far!


  1. Brie, try this game if you have a projector/whiteboard. I bet your students will love it:


  2. The link didn't go through. It's Money Bingo in the 2nd Grade category.
