Jessica, I copied the money puzzles on cardstock and then cut each square apart. The kids match the amount with the coins. Once they are all matched up.. the kids can turn them over to self check. If it is correct, the two cards should make one picture. Also the little legs on the coins are legs and hair. The legs are worth 5 and hair 1. It is just another strategy to help those kiddos who struggle counting coins, however, they can skip count. It has really helped them. Hope that helps :)
