Counting Coins Games

In second grade this year, we are working hard to learn how to count money. Last year we focused on counting one type of coin at a time making use of skip counting to add up the coin values. This year we are working on mixed coin values the utilize skip counting and addition with carrying to find the total value. This counting coins game fits in perfectly with the second grade skill level of learning to add with carrying and adding higher numbers, but is handy for kindergarteners, grade 1, grade 2, and grade 2 students too.

Coin counting games

Have your student count out the values of the coins on each clip card and place a clothes pin on the correct value at the bottom of the card. Your students will get practice adding and subtracting the values of:

  • quarters
  • dimes
  • nickels
  • pennies

It may help to write out the values of each coin in the form of an addition problem for students who are not ready to do the skip counting in their head. Remember to have the child count the largest coins first and work through to the smallest coins. (Quarters, dimes, nickels, then pennies.)

To extend the free counting money games you can have the students count out the values using real coins or find an alternative group of coins that would equal the same amount. This is such a great addition to your kindergarten math, grade 1 math, and grade 2 math!
