Room 8’s Learning about $$money$$

What do we know about MONEY? $$$$$$


As a class we looked at real New Zealand money.

Rm 8. Identifying $$.jpg
Here we are as a class identifying our New Zealand money.

We got to see it,
touch it, smell it and
share our ideas.

We looked at the $1 coin

Here’s what we shared about NZ coins and the $1 coin.

Azaelea, Jayla, Hayzell and Mele.

We did some coin rubbings, we liked doing this activity.
Our teacher showed us how to hold the coin under the paper and rubbed over the paper.
We all went “Whoa” when we saw a picture appear. Cool!!

Kha'Lisia knows $2.jpg
"This is $2", says Kha'Lisia

Jayla knows 50cents.jpg
"This is 50 cents", says Jayla

We are learning the names of our New Zealand money and we know it is important to have money to buy our food, clothes and toys, so "Don’t waste it", said Kepueli.

Jayla said, “ All the money is in a castle with Queen Elizabeth”, and Kepueli said, “It is kept in a museum”. Micah said, “Money comes from a teller machine at the shop and my dad’s work”.

Here's our little chant we did when we went on our 'walking bus' to do our shopping at PAK n' SAVE.

We are going shopping, we are going shopping.
We're not scared, we're not scared.
It's a beautiful day! It's a beautiful day!
Oh oh! We need MONEY!
