I had to work with what I had at the moment, a cardboard box in the recycling bin - all we did was glue the coins onto the box - front and back - and then had Ashton write out what each coin was and how much it was worth.
With his money flash cards, he could compare coins and see right away how much each coin was worth.
He went from being frustrated and about to give up - to being happy that he was getting it!
No, I don't agree with cheating. But, since I made this cheat sheet for him - it's working!
After just a few nights of using his cheat sheet, I removed it and he's remembering all the coins!! Makes a mom proud!
Any tips to share on helping kids learn their coins?
