Yes, time and money might be introduced in K-1st, but they're usually not the focus until around age 8 (2nd-3rd). I'd move on to addition and subtraction facts up to 10 (making 4 facts per family... like 2+1=3 ... 1+2=3 ... 3-1=2 ... 3-2=1) and skip counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's. If you want to teach time, I'd do only :00 and :30, and if you want to teach money, I'd teach only recognition of coins, not values.
Thanks to tasha_mae for my siggy!
