Time & Money

Time & Money

Some say time is money, but that’s not really the sort of thing we’re talking about today. Time & Money, what brings these two together? Two mismatched math skills, both are critical for everyday living. Both are a broader spectrum that seems at first glance. Want to know how we can help you teach or reinforce these skills? Read on!


Time- this covers several concepts, like clock reading and elapsed time. Note, we’re not going to talk today about time management, that’s a whole post for another day!

Games and Flashcards

First of all, consider flashcards. Most flashcards have extension activities, to keep things interesting. Another option are games, we have some good ones; like this one and also this one.

Other Resources

Got a short attention span? Then the Rock n’Learn DVD is a good choice. Hot Dots are a particularly good one for self-directed learning. Want to show time in action? Grab a digital timer or sand timer!


Starting with coin & bill recognition, this category also includes things like money management and even percentages!

Flashcards and Games

Why not start off with games, like Money Match Me, Math Fact Oh! (Money edition), Money Bags Game and classic Money Bingo for recognition and change making.  When you’re ready to step up to more advanced skills, Budget and Bank Account are about money management. Another option is flashcards, another good tool.

Other Resources

We have (learning) money! From life-size bills and coins to magnets. Also available are, wipe on/off placemats, and learning mats! Want another option? Try Hot Dots! Would something more visual and multi-sensory be better? Then get Rock n’Learn, an animated musical DVD.
