Our Counting Coins Preschool Unit

We are taking a week off from our letter of the week curriculum to focus on other mini preschool units.
First up....our Counting Coins Preschool Unit!

Our book for this unit...

I glued the front and back of each coin to cardstock

we used this for coin rubbings

I used cardstock on a tissue box to make a coin bank to practice coin sight words
and work those little fine motor skills pushing the coins through each slot

We sorted coins into little containers

Play money I found at the Dollar Tree
(great for pretend shopping, sorting, and making patterns)

Money coloring sheets from Money Instructor

We also watched some cute coin counting videos I found on YouTube

We also practiced saying the coin poem I found.
You can download my Coin Poem printable here!


  1. Great money activities. I remember doing coin rubbings in school.

  2. Wonderful money activities! I love the money sight words and bank!

  3. Thanks for the links! awesome coin activities!

  4. I LOVE this idea and will definitely be using it with my 3 1/2 year old! Thanks for sharing:)

  5. Love your ideas! I have been trying to teach my 5 and 3 year old about money, but was running out of ideas! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love the simplicity of sorting the coins into different containers. I may have to try this with my daughter to introduce her to the different coins (right now everything is a quarter to her).


I love feedback :)
