Visit our Money category on LearningGrids to find a variety of resources that support children’s understanding of basic money concepts. We have resources for naming and recognising the values of coins, as well as counting and creating combinations of coins to total different amounts.
Our Recognising Coins – Read It Yourself Clicker Book offers children clear graphics and simple text that reinforces the names of coins up to the value of two pounds. The related Talk, Sentence, Matching and Custom Sets encourage children to recognise the values of the coins.
To support children to problem solve and record addition calculations with money, use the differentiated Money Targets Connect Sets. Children select from different coins, an addition and equals symbol and the target number to create money calculations. These resources can also be printed and used as a table top activity.
For a great way of reinforcing place value concepts with money, children can read the Clicker Book Tens and Ones Coins – Read a Book and use the related resources to find totals and create calculations with groups of ten pence and one penny coins.
