Free Printable Money Worksheets
Money Challenges

Welcome to the 2nd Grade Math Salamanders Free Printable Money Worksheets.

The worksheets on this page are all about solving fun Money Challenges with money up to $10.

Solving challenges is something that motivates most kids - and it gives them a real sense of achievement when they succeed.

Knowing how to handle and calculate with money is a very important life-skill.

During 2nd grade, children build on their knowledge and skills they have achieved at first grade.

By the time children reach the end of 2nd grade, they should be able to:-

  • use decimal notation for amounts of money, e.g. $3.27
  • change amounts in $ to amounts in ¢ and back;
  • count money up to $10;
  • calculate change for amounts of money up to $10;
  • add and subtract money amounts in $ and ¢

Our worksheets will support your child with these objectives.
