1 nickel= 5 cents, 1 penny= 1 cent. 5 cents plus 1 cent= 6 cents. I think the easiest way is to just add up 2 cents until you reach 6 cents which we know is 3 but a first grader will probably have to count by 2s.

I would suggest that you have himto draw 3 or more rings on a piece of paper. Write a 2 cents in the middle of each ring picture. Ask him to count how many rings add up to 6 cents. Then if you had your child to draw more than 3 rings you can go farther and ask how many if he had 8 cents and so on. I hope this helps you.
