Activity: This activity is about playing “four in a row” or “connect four”. You need to play with a partner. If you can read the silent “e” word, you mark it with a pencil/crayon.

This will be explained in the screencast.

Here is a summary for parents/caregivers:

  1. Print the sheet with images of money (it is in colour but a black and white copy is adequate) See Attachment 3. If you don’t have a printer you can draw the money you need using circles and rectangles. (5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100)
  2. Open up to a new page in your scrap book.
  3. Use a ruler to rule a line down the centre of your scrapbook.
  4. At the top in the middle paste (or write if you don’t have a printer) the words “Smallest Value”
  5. At the bottom in the middle paste the words “Largest Value”
  6. On one side order the coins from smallest to largest value.
  7. On the other side order the notes from smallest to largest value.

Now it’s time to play a “pay the price” money game:
