Counting Money

What is a different way to get students to count money besides giving them fake money and boring worksheets? The 4th grade students in the math class I help in are pretty low and some of them have trouble adding a quarter and a dime together. Does anyone have any techniques to help them count money?

Google YouTube and type in making change with a 100s chart. It is an interesting approach.

Brain pop jr. has some great videos about money. I like the idea of setting up a store in the classroom. So throughout the year the children can earn money for good behavior and buy prizes at the end of each week. It makes it more fun and realisitic.

Have them go shopping. I put out all kids of fun items and put pricetags. Then, they each have money. They have to go from table to table buying items and figuring out their change before moving to the next table. They LOVE it. I just use stuff in the room...pencils, erasers, folders, stickers, postits, small notebooks, even some healthy snacks, ect...they then keep the stuff they buy at their tables.

Yes! Classroom store. I was going to setup one in my 2nd grade classroom last week, but we were cut short due to assemblies and a professional development day. During calendar math I always start with a random number (ex. 27) and we add 10 all the way to 100. (27, 37, 47) I noticed that this really helped my kids with adding dimes to other coins.

you can open a restaurant.
brain storm for:
name
design a menu
draw pictures
work in small groups for:
cook
waiters
shoppers
prepare a budget
and have in the center a cashier
is when the kids will use the money.
to take it further kids can design their own currency
have focus math word wall.
It is fun. The children learn and love it.
J hope it helps
