A great way to reinforce the concept of counting money is to find an old change purse and set it in a special spot. Use the same spot every time. Each night, fill the coin purse with a different combination of coins. Set a piece of paper and a pencil next to the purse. Build a routine where each morning, or each day after school, they come to the purse, empty it out and count the money. Teach them to sort the coins first, count, then write the value of the money on the piece of paper. If it is right, give them a special reward. If not, help them count it again. Each day, you can increase the difficulty but make the first few times simple so they feel confident until the routine really kicks in.
