We worked on sorting coins today. My little ladybug loves money. "Me money." is her favorite saying whenever she see cash in hand!
I found these great sorting mats for U.S. coins. There are two printables - one showing the fronts of the coins and one showing the backs. One other nifty feature of these mats is that each column is labeled with the word for the coin in both singular and plural. My six year old picked up on this right away and had lots of questions -- even noticing that penny doesn't just get an s added, but changes to -ies!
Now to make some more bean sticks to work on counting this summer....
