At Smart Boarding School, we're dedicated to making math learning engaging and interactive for young learners. Today, we're excited to introduce a dynamic worksheet aimed at kindergarten students who are embarking on a journey to learn about Australian money: "Ordering Coins." With its hands-on approach and focus on sorting coins, "Ordering Coins" offers a fun and educational way for students to develop their understanding of Australian coins and their values.

What is "Ordering Coins"?

"Ordering Coins" is a free worksheet designed to help kindergarten students practice sorting Australian coins from smallest to largest. By engaging in this hands-on activity, students develop essential skills in coin recognition, sequencing, and numerical order, all while exploring the fascinating world of Australian money.

How to Complete "Ordering Coins"

  1. Preparation: The worksheet contains images of Australian coins at the bottom of the page. Students begin by cutting out these coins.

  2. Sorting: At the top of the worksheet are boxes labeled with different coin values. Students must glue the coins into the boxes, arranging them from the smallest value to the largest value.
