How to count and add coins together by putting them into piles. In this animation, El Nombre helps a child raise money for the school bell by charging 10p for each child, but he struggles with adding up how much he has saved. El Nombre sorts the money into groups of the same coins, totalling each group and then adding them together.
Real money could be given to the children to count and add up. Start adding the same coins first, then mix them with different coins which will help them to count securely in steps of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and so on.
