Functional Math - Counting Money

Functional Math - Counting Money
Product Description
Learning to count money is an important functional skill for students with special needs. Each functional skill that is mastered allows the student to become more independent.

There are a series of steps in learning to count money. They begin with learning the “dollar up” method, then place value, and finally coin equivalency. As students learn each step, they need to have lots of opportunity to practice in the classroom as well as in real-life settings. Whenever possible, real money should be used when teaching money counting skills to students with special needs, as this skill is not generalized when facsimiles are used.

This lesson plan explains each step and gives examples of how this skill can be practiced in the classroom as well as the community.
