This resource is aimed at junior/middle pupils or SEN pupils at the beginning of work on money. It is based on the addition of three coins up to 30c. Pupils should be able to recognise coins before engaging in this exercise.
Cut up the sheets into six separate cards and laminate them individually. Pupils should add the three coins on the left side of each card and place a clothes peg on the correct answer on the right side of the card.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can count money. It is a way for them to demonstrate their understanding of the concept of money. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what Maths topic we were currently working on.
This activity could also be used as an independent work task completed by a pupil in their work station.
