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.

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."

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.

      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!
