Money & Making Change

  • Published on:  9/19/2019
  • Penny and Bill know how to shake things up when it comes to counting money and making change. Fun songs and activities give plenty of practice with real-world skills. Kids learn about coins and how they relate to one another, strategies for counting coins and bills, "skip counting," expressing money in written terms, strategies for making change, and more.

    Children learn how to recognize coins, a little about the history of money, why coins and bills are starting to look different, and much more. They learn strategies for sorting coins and cash and use "skip counting" to find out exactly how much money they have.

    After lots of practice counting money, Penny and Bill learn how to make change by pretending to buy funny items at a garage sale. Kids have time to practice counting money and making change along with them before hearing the answers. Join Penny and Bill front row for their concert at the end to celebrate this learning adventure.
