This is the second Unit in my comprehensive money identification and adding. I call this the baby step method of learning to add money. The worksheets move at a pace that is more natural, especially for a student with special needs.
Each of one of my units is a series of worksheets with an assessment at the end. This unit contain 4 lessons (four set of worksheets).
The first lesson starts out easy, short, and with visual aids. As the lessons get harder the hints stop showing up on the worksheets, and the counting gets a little harder.
I also like to overlap lessons, so the student can maintain the knowledge and critical thinking skills they developed over the previous lessons. For example, the prior lesson to this was an introduction to identifying pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters, so in addition to adding pennies, their are a few refreshers on coin identification included.
