1, 2, 3, 4 Quarters in a $1


Welcome back!

Today's post will focus on Math skills, namely counting coin money.



There are many steps involved when we expect students to count coin money.
First, students must be able to count by 1's, 5's, 10's, and 25's. This is an accomplishment in itself!

Second, students must learn to recognize each coin and third, students have to learn and comprehend the value associated with each coin.

Today I want to share a song I wrote to help students learn how many quarters are in one dollar.


Lyrics:
1, 2, 3, 4 Quarters in a Dollar.
1, 2, 3, 4 Quarters in a Dollar.
25 cents, then 50 cents. 75 cents, then One Dollar.

1, 2, 3, 4 Quarters in a Dollar.
1, 2, 3, 4 Quarters in a Dollar.

Here's a visual aide I made for this song via Windows Movie Maker.

What songs to you use to help teach counting money?
As always, thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for a post about the coldest place I know!
