Money unit in year one

There was much excitement in the Year One rooms this week, with the culmination of our mathematics ‘Money’ unit taking place. Over the past couple of weeks, the students designed their own shops, giving it a name and creating the items they wanted to sell. Children throughout Year One learned new skills in giving exact money using multiple coins, accurately pricing items and using their advertising skills to sell their product. They were able to purchase items of interest from their peers’ stalls, by first seeking a loan from the ‘bank’. What fun it was!
