Gold coin math printable
It’s St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th.
St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, which is also home to leprechauns: Irish fairies who are said to store their gold in a pot at the end of the rainbow.
These printable gold coins bring a fun hands-on element to math play whether you’re celebrating St.Patrick’s Day – or hosting a pirate party!
How to use this printable
Print the gold coin sheets (see below) and cut out the coins.
You might like to laminate the sheets for extra durability.
There are three sheets in the set:
:: numbers 1 to 10
:: a sheet of ‘5’ coins for five times table skip counting
:: a sheet of ’10’ coins for ten times table skip counting
How to play with the gold coins
:: Hide the coins around the room and see if your children can find them all. Can they line them up in number order, from biggest to smallest, and from smallest to biggest?
:: Peg up the coins to make a number line.
:: Use the coins alongside a sensory writing tray and practice writing the digits.
:: Use the coins to practice skip counting. Set out the set of ‘5’s and / or the ’10’s and use them to practice your five and ten times table. You might like to tape these coins along a wall or on the floor so your children can touch them or hop on them every time they pass by, for regular, fun math drills.
