Use this activity mat to practise counting and representing money.

Print the activity mat on cardstock and place it inside a ‘write and wipe’ sleeve. Then have students use a whiteboard marker and wipe clean when complete.

Ways to use this resource: 

  • Using play money, students grab a small handful of coins and place them on their piggy bank. They must then determine the amount and write it on the line using a cent sign or a dollar sign and a decimal point. This can be done using the same coin type or a combination of coin types.
  • Using play money, students place a coin in their piggy bank. They then identify the coin and write the name on the line.
  • Give students a value to write on the line at the bottom of their mat. They then use play money to show the amount.

This resource works well when used in a learning centre or during maths groups.
