    How do you teach your beginning first graders coin values?

    I have a “Money Song” we sing at our morning meeting. Each day a penny is added to our piggy bank and the “student of the day” is the banker and counts the money and writes the amount on the board. While he/she is writing we sing the song….”I like money to buy things at the store. Money, money, money, I always want more. A penny’s worth one cent. A nickels worth 5 cents, a dime’s worth ten cents, a quarter….25. I like money to buy things at the store. Money, money money, I always want more!”

    I have a display on my board with a large cutout of each doing and the name and amount printed next to it.

    Unfortunately, money is not in the PA Common Core so we don’t teach it as part of our math curriculum.

    I love the coin song, I also played lots of games in my room last year. I also did a managment system at the end of year using good bucks and the kids would have to count their money in order to go to the store. I think this year I am going to try to include a “bank” and let students who understand money be the bankers and count and keep up with money for me !

    I’ve been teaching first grade for a long time and am embarrassed to say that I never knew the “Money Song.” Shame on me! I’ll be adding it to my morning routines, no doubt!

    Since money is not part of the first grade math curriculum according to Common Core, I teach money mostly through Smartboard games during some whole group math time. I like to use internet games found through Internet4Classrooms.
