    I need some help on teaching money. None of my students can count money and most of them do not know the value of money. It seems like we have been working on the value of coins FOREVER....(I had most of these kids last year too.)

    The kids can count by 5's and 10's, but do not automatically apply this skill to counting money. They will do it after I remind them. Also, mixing up the coins really messes them up too.

    If I don't do anything else this year, these kids WILL learn how to count money!!!! Last year, I had them use calculators to add up the money, but I really want them to be able to count it independently.

    Does anyone have any awesome resources? Let me know PLEASE!

    The teacher across the hall had a touchmoney kit. I borrowed it. We used it today, and it CLICKED! I love it!!! We still have a lot of work to do, but I think this is going to work.

    Before I came across touch math, we counted quarters with a "high five" (five fingers), dimes with a "peace" (two fingers) and a nickel with "pointer" finger. Then I only had to teach them to count by fives, and count up from a target number for pennies.
