Hi! Welcome to part three of my blog series about teaching money in the primary classroom. Today I’ll be sharing 8 books that you can use to tie in literature during your money unit. All books are suitable for primary grades. If you’d like to check out parts 1 and 2 of this series, please click on one of the links below. Be sure to read all the way to the end of this post for an exclusive freebie!
I mentioned this book in part 1 of my money series. This book by Brian Cleary is perfect when it comes to introducing money. It has fun rhymes that are easy for the kids to relate too and shows different ways to make a dollar.
The Coin Book is one of my favorites to incorporate during our money unit. I referenced it during my reinforcing money post. This book introduces coin values and shows you different combinations to represent different values. As you read further along into the book the counting coin value increases.
Once Upon a Dime by Nancy Allen talks about a farmer who discovers that money grows on trees at his farm. This fun concept provides a great way for students to make connections while learning about money.
Pigs will be Pigs is a funny story about a pig family that wants to go out to eat for dinner. This book provides lots of support for counting coins along with some additional practice that can be found in the back of the book.
Lemonade in Winter is a cute story about two kids who try to sell lemonade during the middle of winter. This story will teach kids about early business skills along with counting quarters. It is a great addition to any money unit.
If you want to save these books for later, feel free to pin the image below. You can also check out my Math board on Pinterest for more great ideas.
