One of the most important real life math skills kids learn is how to count and handle money. That’s why I was so excited to create this fun resource! These money puzzles help kids work on adding money, recognizing the correct format for denoting money, as well as writing out numbers in words.
I have found that matching puzzle pieces is much more fun and engaging than a worksheet, and provides a helpful visual for students to increase number sense and build understanding.
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.
I would suggest printing the puzzles on card stock, laminating them, and then cutting them out for added durability. Then they can be used over and over! These would be great as a math center or a fun, quiet activity for early finishers.
This set includes 18 different puzzles, 12 that are only coins, and 6 that include dollar bills.
