Dimes
(how many in a dollar?)

All of the time,
I'm counting my
dimes,
Each one is only
10 cents...
But I need a whole
dollar,
To purchase some things,
Like a dog, a cat, and a fence…

I’m counting my
dimes,
I’m counting by
tens,
Starting with
ten, twenty, thirty,
Three silver dimes,
Are here in my jar,
One’s shiny,
2 others are dirty…

I have
3 dimes,
But how many more,
Do I need,
To equal
1 dollar?
That’s
100 cents,
If you figure it out,
Just call,
Just give me a holler!

(don't forget to count by tens!)
