    Australian Money
    By RebeccaH

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Hi I teach a year 1/2 in Perth, WA. Over two years ago on this site I found out information about setting up a shop. Start simple and just get the children to bring in one or two packages etc. Get the children to write price tags. eg 5c, 10c.
    With these things I sometimes give the children a certain amount of money to spend or they write a shopping list eg 1 packet of biscuits 10c, 1 carton milk 5c. They add the amounts together. You could photocopy coins out and when the children write a list they must glue the amount they need at the bottom of their list.
    Because they are year 2's don't make it too hard.
    Look at the animals on the coins. I spend a lot of time working on how can I make 20c, eg 5c,5c,5c,5c, 10c and 10c, 20c, 5c,5c and 10c. Even simple counting of money. Feel free to email me if you want anymore help.
