We use this song in our first grade class to help remember coin exchanges.
It is sung to the tune of "Miss Suzie Had A Steam Boat"

Five pennies trade a nickel,
Two nickels trade a dime,
Two dimes and a nickel trade a quarter every time.
Four quarters trade a dollar,
and that is quite a lot.
And a dollar in my pocket
is exactly what I've got!

Does anyone have any other songs that they have found success with teaching math concepts?
