This coin matching game is a much loved math rotation in our classroom!
It is a great solo independent activity for use in maths rotations.
There are 3 different game boards and 2 different dice to suit your students needs. This enables you to differentiate and use different game boards when playing the same game.
To play the game students roll the dice and then find that coin/value on their board and place a counter. They continue until they have finished. This helps them practise instant recognition of coins and their value. It can be played on their own, making it a nice, quiet activity.
The 3 game boards included in this game are
- all the same coins in a row - (a row of each different coin)
- a grid of mixed coins
- a grid of mixed coins and coin values in numbers
The 2 dice are
- a dice with coin pictures
- a dice with coin values in numbers
There are many ways to play this game. You may play with the coin board and the value dice or vice versa. Choose the game style to suit your students ability, skills and teaching focus.
