Teach your child to Identify Coin Names
Can you imagine not knowing how to count money well? You'd never know if you got the right amount of change back. You wouldn't even know how much to give the cashier. You'd not be able to budget or to keep track of your total while shopping. Wouldn't that be terrible? Money skills are very important. Children begin learning about money so young to ensure they have a good grasp on handling money when they are adults. Here's how you can help your child to learn to count money. The first thing a child needs to learn is to identify the coins. They need to know the coin names and values. A penny is called a penny. That is it's name. A penny is worth one cent. To teach your child the coin names and values tell them what they are while showing them a penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and fifty cent piece. Download and print to get them started!
Printable Money lessons; Identify Coin Names
Kids learn from being shown and told. It may take telling and showing your child each coin several times. Work on one coin at a time. This prevents confusion. You'll find them on worksheets that your child does at school. Kids need to know how much they are worth and how to identify them even though they are not so commonly used.
Once you've gone over the coin names and values with your child several times it's time to challenge them a little bit. Reach into your pocket and pull out a handful of change. Place the change on a flat surface in front of you and your child. Point to any coin on the surface and ask your child what it is and how much it's worth. It's a guessing game. If they get the answers right again and again you know they've mastered the identification. If they don't they need more practice learning coin names and values.
