Add Legs
Old 06-24-2007, 12:06 PM
 

Are they able to count by 5's? If so, this may help. If using a worksheet, draw legs on the coins. If using real money, draw coins on scrap paper and add legs.

A quarter gets 5 legs-"5,10,15,20,25"
A dime gets 2 legs-"5,10"
A Nickel gets 1 leg-"5"

Start with the dime, count each leg, then move on the nickels, counting each leg by 5's. After counting the pennies, put a slash through them.
I hope this makes sense and can help!
