We have been exploring the coins as suggested in the activities book. Many of my students are confusing the names of the coins. Does anyone remember the money songs that we heard at IMI training? Thanks.

I don't have the money songs but I do have the poems that the students can easily memorize. I will send you a copy through school mail. Laughing

Here are the coin poems/songs:
Penny, penny easily spent.
Copper brown and worth 1 cent

Nickel, nickel thick and fat,
you're worth 5 cents I know that!

Dime, dime little and thin
I remember you're worth 10.

Quarter, quarter big and bold
you're worth 25 cents I am told.

My students, also, are having some difficulty with coins. They can remember what they are called, but not how much they are worth. I think that the poems will help with that. Thanks for sharing!

Because the children don't remember the coin value or names, I offer a suggestion which I have used with my students. Since 5 pennies equal one nickel, I tell the children that each finger on my hand represents one penny. The hand represents one nickel. Two nickels represent 10 pennies, shown by holding my hands together and counting the pennies. When the two hands are together they make one dime. 10 pennies, 2 nickels, 1 dime are worth the same amount.

Sharon,
What a great idea. I will use that with my students that need that extra visual!

Marsha- I have money songs that I will send you. Dr. Jean has a song called "Money Song." It teaches values and presidents. Another is called, "Show Me The Money" by Mr. Al's Math in Motion. Dr. Maggie has a few songs on her Math cd. As soon as we get back from spring break, I will send them! Denise

Scholastic has a nice set of books - one for each coin - They "Welcome Books" in the Money Matters Series ISBN 0-516-24891-x. The books have nice short text for kindergarten kids and they love the pictures too.

There is a "Penny, Nickel, Dime" song on the Kiss Your Brain cd by Dr. Jean. It also mentions quarter and half-dollar. We use our fingers and point to the coin chart to help us sing.
