Count Coins and Bills to $10

Let's pretend you're selling lemonade!

You keep a jar on the table for people to put their money in.

At the end of the day, you count all the money inside the jar.

How much money did you earn?

It looks like there are different types of money in your jar.

Some are bills, some are coins:

**👉Bills **are the **paper money.** They are worth **dollars.**

**👍Coins **are the **round money.** They are worth **cents.**

Here are some tips for counting money:

Bills are larger and easier to count.

Each bill is worth a different amount of dollars:

It's pretty easy to see how much a bill is worth. The value is written on the top and bottom corners.

Can you assign the correct value next to each bill in your pile?

Great! Now let's add the values together.

$5 + $1 + $1 = $7

We read this as** seven dollars**.

🖊 When we write the amount of bills we have, we always put a **dollar sign ($)** before the number.

Why don't you write this amount down on a piece of paper?

Let's take a look at the coin chart to see what different coins are worth:

Now look at the coins in your pile. Can you assign the correct value next to each coin?

That looks like a lot of coins!

Before we add them all together, let's rearrange them so that it's easier for us to count them.

Why not stack the same coins together like this:

That way we can skip count the value of each coin

- Skip count the
**quarters**by**25c**. - Skip count the
**dimes**by**10c**. - Skip count the
**nickels**by**5c**.

Now we can add them together:

50c + 30c + 10c = 90c

We read this as **ninety cents**.

🖊 When we write the amount of coins we have, we always put the **cent (c) **sign at the end.

Why don't you write down this amount on a piece of paper?

Can you guess that last step? 🤔

What is$7 + 90c ?

This is where it gets tricky.

You might think that **$7 + 90c = $97 or 97c**. But that's way off!

Dollars and cents are different.

One **dollar **is worth 100 cents.

We use a **decimal point** to separate the dollars from the cents.

We read this as "**Seven dollars and ninety cents**".

You might have seen this written on price tags when you go shopping to buy clothes and food.

😃Tip: All digits to the left of a decimal point are worth 1 or more. The digits to the left of a decimal point are 99 cents or less.

Are you ready for a tricky question?

If $7 + 90c = $7.90....

What is$7 + 100c?

You might think that it equals **$7.100 (seven dollars and one hundred cents)**, but that's not how we would count it.

👉 Remember,100c =$1.

So $7 + 100c becomes:

$7 + $1 = $8

When counting large amounts of coins, try finding **combinations **of coins that **make $1**. It'll help you count much faster.

4 quartersmake $1

10 dimesmake $1

20 nickelsmake $1

100 penniesmake $1

When counting $1 bills, count up by **1's**.

$1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, $9, $10

When counting $5 bills, skip count by **fives**.

$5, $10, $15, $20, $25, $30

When counting $10 bills, skip count by tens.

$10, $20, $30, $40, $50, $60
