Starting in first grade, students should be able to not only identify denominations of coins, but also perform simple addition of coins and bills. First grade students may struggle still with combining whole dollars and cents (decimal arithmetic), but there are variations of the worksheets with counting coins only and counting money (bills) only that can ease this transition. From there, worksheets with coins and bills, including comparing money, are great practice for more advanced students

Students in second and third grades should be very comfortable recognizing specific coins and bills, and they should know exactly what monetary value they correspond to.

These students should also be able to calculate the decimal value of combinations of coins and bills readily, and even start to make their own combinations of money from a decimal representation. The making change worksheets combine these concepts with simple decimal subtraction of monetary values.

Once students have reached this level of proficiency, they should feel comfortable tackling larger problems including exercises with $20, $50 and $100 bills.
