Coins In a Dollar
Song For Teaching Math - Lyrics and Sound Clip
Kathleen Wiley


This song is available on Kathleen Wiley's Math: Sing Your Way to Easy Learning

Lyrics:

A dollar has one hundred cents
We say 100 pennies...
A dollar's made of many coins
We hope that we have many....
A dollar has 10 dimes and yes, 4 quarters make a dollar
If ever you don't need a few, well just give me a holler..

A penny equals 1 cent
It's brown and made of copper...
Abe Lincoln's on the front of it...
His face is a heart-stopper...
The smallest coin in value is a penny...(1 cent...)
If we could keep close track of it
We'd know where our money went...

The next we know is worth 5 cents...
We call this coin a nickel....
It's good to have a few of these-
If ever in a pickle-
A nickel equals 5 cents...
Two nickels make a dime...
A dime is worth 10 pennies...
We use them all the time...

To make a quarter...
Well, let's see... 3 nickels and a dime...
Or 2 dimes and a nickel..... Or just pennies-25!!!
Or try 5 pennies and 4 nickels.,.5 pennies, 2 dimes...
Or take 5 nickels, that's a quarter-All worth 25!!!

Whichever combination that you choose to make a quarter...
The value of each coin you must remember. That's an order!!!
One quarter's 25 cents, 2 quarters equals 50...
3 quarters equals 75...And isn't that just nifty?

So in review, let's see what we can do to make a dollar....
100 pennies,10 dimes, 20 nickels, 4 quarters...
There're many other ways that we could make some combination;
But we'll learn these so we'll feel good in money situations....!!!!
