What's In Your Piggy Bank?

Hello Everyone!
I had a couple minutes of down time today (or I should say, I was forced into down time today due to some vein surgery this week which actually threw me for a crazy loop! UGH!!  If you are a teacher on her feet all day, please make sure you go home from time to time and try to elevate your feet!!!).  Anyway, during my "down time" I had a few minutes to recreate my money posters.  I have posted my money unit before, but I wanted some cute posters to put up as reminders to kids.  
We are starting our week long unit of coins and money this coming week.  Our objectives include identifying the major coins and telling the value.  Kids also need to be able to count groups of like coins and give the value.  It goes right along with all the skip counting we've been doing the past couple of weeks. 
I'm sharing my set of 6 posters which I hope you can use if you are a teacher or a parent!  Here are some pics of what is included in the set.


Now off to help get dinner going and then take it easy!!  Maybe a movie or something!!
Hope you're having a great weekend!!!


  1. I worry about my veins, too...I seem to have inherited my mother's plus being a teacher spells disaster. Hope your surgery went well.

    Love your money posters! So cute!

  2. Well aren't these clever. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am concerned about the pics you used for your money unit. The African American girl has crossed eyes, big mouth with lots of teeth, and wears glasses. Compare her to the others.

    1. Hi Anonymous! Here's another version if you would like!! Made it just for you!! :) I love the big smile on the little character on the first one. I think that's what caught my eye!!! But I get it!

    2. You're the best! SO creative and generous.
      Thanks for all the great ideas...and freebies.
      Any dinosaur units?

  4. These posters are EXACTLY what our first grade team needed for next week! Thank you so very much!
