Coin Rubbing

I am learning to recognise different Australian coins by their features.

I know I can do it when I can identify the features of Australian coins, including the animal and number.

Throughout the week you are going to learn more about the value of each of the Australian coins and how much they are worth.

Today our focus is on identifying the features of each of the coins and what makes them different from one another.

Watch the following video to learn more about Australian coins:

Independent Task

You will need a few Australian coins, a piece of paper and a crayon or pencil.

Place a variety of coins under a piece of paper. Using your pencil/crayon, shade the surface of the coin.

With a family member, discuss the key features of each design that appears in the coin rubbings.

What Australian animals can you see? Write the type of animal you see next to each coin rubbing.

Write a sentence detailing which of the coins is your favourite and why? For example: 

My favourite coin is the 20c coin because it is big and I like platypuses OR My favourite coin is the $2 coin because it is worth the most and I could buy more things with it. 

Please note: This task will need to be submitted on or before Thursday 2nd September 3:30pm.

Please see the following rubric as a marking guide.

Tuesday 31st August – Literacy

Stretching a sentence

I am learning to add adjectives, nouns, verbs, and adverbs to adapt a simple sentence.

I know I can do it when I can write a detailed sentence using adjectives, nouns, verbs, and adverbs.

Yesterday you had a go at stretching a simple sentence to become a longer, descriptive sentence.

Watch the following video to learn more about how to do this:

Independent Task

Today you will continue to work on stretching a sentence, this time you will create the simple sentence yourself.

Reflect on something you have done today that can be used as your beginning sentence. For example:

I had breakfast.

I played with my sister.

I watched a movie.

From your simple sentence you will repeat the same process as yesterday.

Writing the sentence, a further 4 times with each sentence containing an extra detail (a noun, a verb, an adjective and an adverb).
