With a little help from parents, children are able to understand and distinguish between different types of money before they begin kindergarten. Take the time to teach your child the difference between coin and paper money. Discuss the differences in shape, design, color, and other distinguishing marks, along with the names of each coin and paper bill.

Activity

Create a poster with the names of each coin and paper bill. Help your child glue or tape that coin or bill next to its correct name.
