Money Worksheets for Kids | Value of Coins | Learning about Money

Teach the value of each piece of money with coin worksheets for kids.

It's important to teach the value of coins, but with much of our spending done with credit cards or online sometimes children don't even see us use real money.

Use Real Money To Teach About Coins and Bills

We often use credit cards and apps

to pay for things these days.

Make a point of spending actual cash

once in awhile to help your child

learn the concept of money.

Let them count out the money to pay

for a small purchase, like a box of tissues

at the dollar store, for example.

The Movie, Dear John, Features a Coin Collector

Dear John - Coin Collector with Interesting Tid Bits About Coins

Dear John is a movie starring Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, Henry Thomas, and Richard Jenkins. It's based on the book by Nicholas Sparks.

Although it's not for children, this movie features a man who begins collecting coins when his son gets a mule coin (the front is a nickel and the back is a penny). Other interesting coin facts are revealed in this touching movie.

The U.S. Mint

"The United States Mint makes uncirculated coins for saving and collecting. They have the same designs as circulating coins, but they are not meant for daily use."

~ U.S. Mint

Teach About Exchange Rates

The U.S. government tracks the exchange rates for countries worldwide.

This exchange rate table can help teach children about the current value of money in the United States compared with other countries around the world.

The table also lists what each countries' money is called. For example, the U.S. uses the dollar, but many countries in Europe use the euro.

      When I taught special needs children, I first used real coins and then coin worksheets. Great resource for learning about money.

      I wish the teachers used these worksheets back in the day - I still have a memory of learning how to count money in Grade 1 and I just didn't get it - and the teacher was becoming very impatient with me!
