**Counting Money Puzzles:**

I have found that matching puzzle pieces is much more fun and engaging than a worksheet.

The puzzles I’m sharing today allow students to **count and add coins as well as dollar bills** and match them to the written words, as well as the correct money form.

Using these puzzles will give students practice with important and *immensely practical* math skills (counting money) as well as **recognition of number words**.

**Included in the Download:**

This set includes **18 different printable puzzles. **Each puzzle includes 3 pieces, to match the picture of money to money words and the dollar amount.

In the download there are 12 puzzles that show only coins, and 6 puzzles that also include dollar bills.

**Prepping the Puzzles:**

These puzzles will require a little prep work up front, but once you’ve got them cut and ready, you can store them to use over and over again.

First you’ll need to **print the puzzles**. Again, there are two sets in the download, so print what you need. I suggest **printing on card stock paper**, because it’s thicker and more durable. You may also want to **laminate the pages** after printing to really make sure they last.

Once they’re printed, **cut out each puzzle**, and **each puzzle piece**. This can be a bit tedious, so if you have parent volunteers or classroom helpers, it’s a great job for them!

Then you’re all set! I suggest **storing them in a large, labeled zip lock bag**. Then they don’t take up much space, but can be pulled out to use again whenever you need.

I hope you and your students enjoy **practicing counting money** with these puzzles. Grab them for free in my shop using the link below!
