Learning objective

Students will be able to add coins and bills up to $20.


Students will match the item's prices with the written values (e.g., "$2.75" to "2 dollars and 75 cents"). Being able to count money is important; for example, it will help students know how much change they should get back.


Students will review the dollar sign and that it signifies a monetary amount will follow the symbol. The lesson will model the steps to adding up coins and bills: count the bills and then the coins. Count the largest numbers first.

Students will put a group of bills and coins in order from the most value to the least value. Then the lesson will model step-by-step the order in which students should count the money. Students will then answer multiple-choice questions about how much money is shown. They will be encouraged to reflect on how they arrived at their answer.
