Many students on the alternative curriculum struggle with money concepts. Introducing them to the dollar up strategy will give students a bypass strategy that will allow them to purchase items without overpaying.
The dollar up strategy is a very beneficial strategy for our students who struggle with money concepts. This packet includes tools you can use with your current curriculum as well as handouts that allow students to practice the skill. It includes a number line template you can laminate and colorful handouts for students to practice this needed skill using the McDonalds and Burger King menu items. This version is meant for students who require less scaffolding. For more scaffolded support, check out version 1 of the Dollar up strategy.
