Maths: Counting Money
if you have some spare change around the house you could do the following activity starting with single coins 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, 1e, 2e. then you could move on to 3c, 4c, 6c and this is where the children have to think. Make sure to go through the coin names with them first. If working with the smaller coins you can use quantities to represent the coin amount especially for adding activities.
SPHE: Other people are Special. the instructions are included in the file download as to what to do and what to talk about. one of the activities you can choose to do is an Acrostic poem. I have included an example of an acrostic poem below using the word teacher.
