Money Match

Money Sort.png

At Smart Boarding School, we believe that learning about money should be both practical and enjoyable. That's why we're excited to introduce a versatile worksheet aimed at kindergarten students who are diving into the world of Australian money: "Money Match." With its hands-on approach and customisable options, "Money Match" offers a dynamic way for young learners to develop their understanding of Australian coins and their values.

The first page of the worksheet contains images of all the Australian coins, ready to be cut out. Teachers can print multiple copies of this page to ensure there are enough coins for each student, or they may choose to use plastic coins if available, for easy reuse.

 

Alternatively, teachers can print the coins once and laminate them, creating a durable classroom resource that can be used repeatedly during math games, rotations, or as fast finisher activities.

The second and third pages of the document contain boxes with one or more coins inside. Students' task is to calculate the total value of the coins in each box and represent that amount using different combinations of Australian coins. For example, if a box contains a 20 cent coin, students must think of alternative combinations to make 20 cents. This could include using 2 10 cent coins, 4 5 cent coins, or any other combination that adds up to 20 cents.

Understanding Coin Values

Through "Money Match," students develop a solid understanding of the values of Australian coins, including 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents, and 50 cents.

 

Counting and Addition Skills

By calculating the total value of the coins in each box, students strengthen their counting and addition skills in a real-world context.

 

Problem-Solving Abilities

Students engage in critical thinking as they explore different combinations of coins to represent the same value, fostering their problem-solving abilities.

 

Key Benefits

  • Hands-On Learning: Manipulating physical coins allows students to interact with money in a tangible way, promoting deeper understanding and retention of concepts.

  • Versatility: "Money Match" can be adapted to suit various teaching styles and classroom settings, making it an ideal resource for differentiated instruction.

  • Reusability: Whether using printed coins or plastic ones, "Money Match" is a resource that can be used repeatedly, providing ongoing opportunities for reinforcement and practice.
