We LOVE Rock N Learn. My 5 year loves this one in partivular. He's facinated with coins and lives hearing about who's one then & how much they are worth.

"This DVD teaches kids aged six and up how to recognize and count American currency, with a focus on the coins.
The presenters of this musical cartoon are Penny Money (get it 007 fans?) and Bill Dollar. Penny is a coin (naturally) and wears high topped boots that go a lot further than she can, while Bill rocks it with his bass guitar.
After meeting Penny and Bill, the next video introduces the clinkable coinage, describing the features and sizes. It includes the JFK half-dollar, the silver Susan B. Anthony dollar and the golden Sacajawea dollar, as well as the Presidential dollar coins.
The DVD goes on to count pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars and bills, before teaching notation, equivalents, and how to separate your money for counting. Counting practice continues with a couple of games, and then the DVD wraps up with a section on making change before the closing music video.
If you're not from the USA, but use coins with similar denominations, some parts of the DVD can be used to teach counting and making change, but the focus here is on US currency.
This is a good tool for teaching kids how to be penny wise.

A perfect addition to home schooling curriculums

"The animated characters of Penny and Bill will show children ages 6 through 8 just how they can count money and make change in the lively, colorful, entertaining and instructive Rock 'N Learn DVD "Money & Making Change". This 57-minute DVD teaches how coins relate to each other, the technique of 'skip counting', how to express money in written terms, strategies for making change, and more! From 'The Coin Song', to the 'Count the Coins Game', to 'Penny & Bill Live in Concert', "Money & Making Change" is as entertaining as it is informative. A perfect addition to home schooling curriculums, this is one 'kid friendly' educational DVD that truly deserves to be a part of every school and community collection."
