Learning to count money can be a very frustrating concept. I created a Montessori work for Sophia to do at the table.
First, lay out the cotton rug. Then, find a plastic tray that has compartments for four coins. Using cardboard, make a sign for the value of each coin. Then get a dish with several coins in it. The first task is to name each coin and place it in the correct value spot in the tray.
Once they have accomplished this, work on teaching how to count by that value.
The next task is to have them assign coins to a value using pieces of paper with cent values on it . I also added pictures of items from her visual schedule to pretend we were shopping.
