Place Values: Money Practice Board

In response to a readers request from my recent post on the Place Value Practice Board, I created a Place Value Money Board as well!  This one goes up to $9999.99.  It’s a great hands on way to work on place value and proper money notation, and I think  this is a great visual for students!

  • Printer with lots of ink ;o)
  • 4 sheets of durable cardstock
  • Lamination
  • Spiral bind (I took mine to Office Depot)



STEP 1: Print pages 3-7 on cardstock and laminate for durability.

STEP 2: Cut out the cover page, and back page. Cut out the blank and 0-9 number strips LEAVING THE STRIPS WHOLE – Do NOT cut apart individual numbers yet. (See below, ignore the fact that mine is already bound…yours won’t be at this stage.) Per a reader request, I also added a row of blank cards as well, so you don’t have something like $0013.56.



STEP 3: Take the pages to a local office supply store and have them spiral bound with a white spiral binding. (See above!)

STEP 4: Carefully cut along the lines to separate each individual number strip. (See below)


(Hopefully yours won’t be all goofy looking like mine, the nice man at Office Depot didn’t bind it correctly, so they hang funny. The good news is I got it for free since he messed up!)


STEP 5: Start building numbers as needed to help with place value practice! I like to put a bag full of money in their workbox along with this money practice tool and then have them count the money in their drawer and make it using the money flip chart. You can see the blank flip pieces below in the thousands and hundreds place.

I hope you enjoy this fun and helpful math tool!

    Thanks for the time you put into working on these and then giving them for free. I made up the place value flip chart and love it! These are great resources.

    WOW what a great idea for teaching money, decimals and how to count up to 1000’s 🙂 I love all of your printables and this looks great!

    what does it cost to get something spiral bound?

    • erica October 23, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    Love this! Great way to help my daughter learn about place value and money!

    Thank you making these. I will print them up when we start working on place value in a couple weeks.

      We use alot of your K4 in our homeschool every day. Lately we have been studying odd and even numbers and I was wondering if you could make a cute odd and even chart on one page that could be used by boys and girls (similar to the skip counting charts)?

        0 – 9 only. Thanks for your consideration.

    Aah! This is brilliant, and so easy! Bobbie, getting things spiral bound doesn’t usually cost a lot — I’ve had thick books bound before for under $5, so I imagine something like this would be even less.
