Sometimes, the concept of money is difficult for children. Learning the values and representations on the different coins is not easy. Sometimes, children just need a catchy tune, poem, or rap song to help them remember. There’s a “cool” song to help remember the values of the coins, the presidents on the coins, and the representations on the back sides of the coins. My students really enjoyed the song, “Coins in My Hands,” however, the version we used is no longer on YouTube. There are other versions of it, though not as good as the one we used. There are also several other good coin songs on YouTube which my students enjoyed as well.
I have used several different money songs that my students enjoyed and that helped them remember the values of the coins. Some of the songs I used in the past are not available online in 2020. However, the Sesame Street Songs are still online.
Here are some other videos for teaching about money:
