Myself along side with A. Wihongi are the lead teachers to provide awareness about money. As a starting point for Room 10 we decided to create a shop (who can remember playing shop keepers?). They kept wrappers from their lunch box and cut out other things from magazines and pasted images onto a plastic cup for sturdiness. They felt very happy, proud and excited about their setup.
Here's another example of how the teacher integrated money into writing and Te Reo.
