```									 Counting Coins
Using Touch Points
Touch Points
A touch point is a “dot” or “dots” on a coin

Each touch point is worth 5 cents

Each type of coin has a different number of touch points depending
on how much that coin is worth

We always count by 5’s when we are using touch points on the coins
Nickel
A nickel is worth 5¢

5     This is a nickel

We say:

A nickel has 1 touch point   “5¢”
Dime
A dime is worth 10¢

 This is a dime
5           10

We say:
A dime has 2 touch points                “5¢, 10¢”
Quarter
A quarter is worth 25¢
10

 This is a quarter

5        25        15

20
We say:
“5¢, 10¢, 15¢, 20¢, 25¢”

A quarter has 5 touch points
Penny
A penny is worth 1¢

This is a penny.

A penny does not have any touch points because it is less than 5 ¢

After you count all of your touch points
you must remember to count any pennies!
