How to Count Groups of Coins - Counting money can be quite tricky especially when it comes to coins! The value of the coin doesn’t match the size of the coin, and we often get confused when we see a group of coins in front of us. But don’t worry, we have a few tips that will help you count coins easily! Here's what you have to do: Collect all the coins in your house. Start by sorting the coins individually. Make groups of the coins. Place the same coins in one group. For example, place all 5c in one group and place all 10c coins in another group. Count how many coins each stack holds. The easiest method is to count in bundles of five. Start with five, then ten, fifteen, and so on. It's quicker and easier. Write the number of coins in each stack on a piece of paper. This will help you remember the correct number. Total the amount by adding each stack value. You're done! These worksheets and lessons will help students start to think critically about the money values.
