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.

This game has three different money game boards to use. It helps students with coin recognition and adding money.
To play students roll a dice and move around the game board. They collect the coin they land on and keep taking turns until they reach the finish. Then, depending on their ability/skills you can direct them to finish the game differently. To make it easier have the students line their coins up in order from smallest to largest value. For a more complex ending have your students line up their coins, but then also add them up and see who has the highest total.
I like to enlarge the games to A3. I then cut the game board out and glue onto coloured A3 card and laminate.
The 3 game boards include
- all coin pictures
- a mix of coin pictures and coin values
- all coin values
