Don’t want learning about money to be a bore? Some kids need more help than others, try these fun printable winter U.S. money puzzles can match up coins and bills with their values.
Stay warm as you bring math into your math lessons today. Hot chocolate, mittens, boots and snow all mean the weather outside is chilling. But you can still have fun and learn at the same time in this cold weather.
Use these money puzzles to identify coins, both front and back, and bills. Also, learn how to add them all up to $100. Using both bills and coins, figure out what the total amount is and match it up to the correct answer.
Puzzles are perfect for kids who are learning something for the first time. If they’re unsure of the answer, they can see if they can match it up with the correct shape. If they get an answer incorrect, no big deal, they just look for the next one.
Recommend Winter Books for Kids
There are so many amazing winter picture books to choose from and they can tie into any winter activity that you’ll be working on. The kids can read the book on their own or you can do it as a read aloud. We still do read alouds now even though my son can read well on his own.
Print out these puzzles and laminate them so you can use them again and again. I store my puzzles in a ziploc bag so my daughter can easily pull them out when we’re ready to work on math for the day.
