  • Save time and laminate by putting cards in baseball card holders
  • All the cards have the coins lined up in rows and they are all face-up for beginning learners.
  • Coins on the cards are the same size as real coins so they could be matched for manipulatives to count the change.
  • Cards have between 1 and 4 coins per card.
  • Differentiated cards for specific skills (See What's Included for details)
  • Cards are all multiple-choice with 3 choices so that students can use dry-erase markers to circle the answer and are not required to write the answers.
  • Students who are unable to circle could dab the answers with a marker or use a clothespin or paperclip to mark the answer. 
  • Response sheets (in color and black and white) also included for students who are able to write their answers on a separate sheet.
  • Cards of grocery store items with price tags for matching prices to items.
