Put it in the Piggy Bank
Put it in the piggy bank is a great way to introduce coins to your students. In this game the students roll a 6 sided dice (dot formation is a great way to add the skill of subitising to the mix!), and then cover the corresponding coin in their piggy bank. Each player will need their own game board (there are 4 different versions) and a copy of the key. The coin in their piggy bank can be covered using toy money for the added "fun" element.
As an extension for your more capable students you may like to have them add together the value of their coins (each game board has a different value).
