Q:

A Little Help Please with Adding Coins and Telling Time

My step~son is struggling with adding 5 or more coins of different values.

And he is also, struggling on a round clock. He does fine with the digital clock. But cant take the time off of it and transfer it to a round clock using paper and pencil.

Any ideas as to where I could find worksheets that would help him with this? I have a few phonics books that the teacher approved that I found. But, they dont spend more than a page or 2 on either of these 2.

Thanks for any help!

As far as the coins, I would first find out what he CAN do. Can he count pennies by themselves? Then start with just nickels and pennies. Add in a few dimes once he can do this.Slowly add in the rest. Also, I would use real coins if possible. Many kids need hands on before they can do it abstractly in a workbook. As far as the clock, can  he read a real clock? Again, many kids need to practice on a real clock first. One of the skills kids need to tell time is counting by fives. You can work on this anywhere. Also, putting 5, 10, etc. next to the numbers on the clocks in your home would probably help. I do have more suggestions, so write back if you need more help. Good luck!:)

There are some websites that provide kids with a ton of practice and feedback with these skills.  Look here for a list of sites that provide kids with money practice.  "Counting Money" and "The Value of Coins" are 2 of the sites most appropriate to 2nd graders:

For telling time using an analog clock, here's a list of sites where he can practice:

Some kids learn best by using their hands to manipulate items, like the coins or a clock.  Try using these "manipulatives" with the problems on the websites to help him to understand counting money and telling time.
