This resource is suitable for use with students who are learning the addition of UK coins up to £1.00. This includes native English speakers and students who are new to English and the sterling currency.
These games could be used by younger students who are quick to finish given tasks or as alternative interesting fun ways of practising counting money accurately. Playing games is particularly helpful for new arrivals who have very little English, as it encourages peer interaction where much language can be learned.
Older/Adult English as an Additional Language students who have recently arrived in the UK would also benefit from using this resource, as being able to accurately count coins while shopping is helpful.
The games are engaging and provide fun ways to teach and reinforce the addition of values up to and including £1.00.
.All pages should be printed and laminated for durability. There are three games in this resource
1. I have.. Who has..?. (36 cards)
A teacher checklist is provided for the I have.. Who has..? game so that the teacher can ensure that the students are adding the money accurately.
2. Balance the scales (4 games) (15 amounts of money to be counted in each game)
The scales, cards and answer sheets are colour co – ordinated. This game can be used as an individual activity or by 2 or 3 players. If more than one player is playing, turns can be taken to check if the answers are correct. Points can be allocated to individuals for each correct answer. The winner will be the player with the most points. A piece of paper with the students names is needed for recording the points.
3. Money Matching (6 games)
Answer sheets and student results sheets are included. Students colour one star for each correct answer. Only the money matching cards should be cut out. The game boards and matching cards are colour co – ordinated. All the money matching answers are in black but can be identified by the game number in the top right hand corner of the sheet.
Full instructions for playing the games are included in the resource and also included in the preview.
