PDF | 1 page|Grades: 1 - 3

An activity mat to practice counting and representing money.

Use this activity mat to practice counting and representing money.

Print the activity mat on cardstock and place it inside of a dry-erase sleeve. Then, have students use a dry-erase marker and wipe clean when complete.

Way to use this resource: 

  • Using play money, have students grab a small handful of coins and place them on their piggy bank. Then, they must determine the amount and write it on the line using a cent sign or a dollar sign and a decimal point. This can be done using the same coin type or a combination of coin types.
  • Using play money, have students place a coin in their piggy bank. Then, they must identify the coin type and write the name on the line.
  • Give students a value to write on the line at the bottom of their mat. Then, have them use play money to show the amount.

This resource works well when used in a math center or as a guided math activity.
