Money and coins simply use the four operations math facts: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
Most of the skill of counting money is in recognizing the value of the coins, their names, and using the right operations to add or multiply. The first set of money worksheets has the pictures of the coins and practice exercises involving their names and values. The other is a set of skip counting worksheets which offer an easy way to learn to count money.
For nickles practice counting by fives, for dimes count by ten, and for quarters count by 25 - pretty easy to memorize with only four numbers: 25, 50, 75, 100, and 1000. A quarter is named for dividing a dollar by four. One fourth is a quarter.

See these two money math worksheets to see how skip counting can help your kids learn to count money. Learning to skip count by five, ten, twenty, and twenty-five is very helpful when counting money.
Kids can either copy the numbers or simply read the line several times to get the feel of skipping the other numbers. Repeating small sections of 3 to 5 numbers is the easiest way to start.
Five, ten, fifteen, twenty....
Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty....
25, 50, 75, 100 (this is a huge help in later years as with percents)....
This is also a great time to point out that this is easy multiplication or a way to tell time, especially counting by fives.
See as Mary tells your children about US coins; what they look like and what value they have. Children love to see the "real thing".
