5 mins

Recap what students know about money, and what they know about adding money.

B.

Development

15 mins

Discuss matching the value of a price tag to the coin/s required to pay for the items.
Demonstrate adding coins together to create another amount. (65c requires a 50c, 10c and a 5c)
Demonstrate equivalent amounts (50c + 50c is the same as $1)
C.

Consolidation, practice, extension

25mins

Whole class: Students complete worksheets


Pull out group: recap matching price tag with $ values on coins and adding coins to make another amount.
D.

Closure

5 mins

Discuss what we learnt about money and what we learnt about adding money.
Post-lesson review and evaluation:
Student achievement:
To what extent were outcomes achieved? How did the students demonstrate this?

Teaching effectiveness:
What have you learnt from the lesson?

What do you recommend for future lessons?

Comment on your effectiveness in the light of the objectives/outcomes of the lesson and your self-development
focus for the lesson, referring to both strengths and areas to be addressed.

Associate Teacher comments:

Lesson/activity transition: 10 mins


This is the activity required to terminate the first lesson/activity and to initiate the next lesson/activity.
lesson/activity transition is not to be confused with a lesson/activity conclusion.

The maximum recommended time is 3-4 minutes. Activities may include collecting used materials, tidying the room,
returning materials to shelves, a song, a jingle/action rhyme, a stretching activity, reorganisation of furniture,
distribution of materials for the next lesson/activity.

Step 1: Pack up all books into basket, all desks clear
Step 2: Standing behind chair when task is complete
Step 3: Lunch time
