This packet is designed for use with the Cost/Pay Tool (available for download in my store). The Dollar Up Method is a tried and true method of figuring out an appropriate amount to make a purchase. For example, let's say an item costs $6.38. Students can use the Cost/Pay Tool to identify the dollar amount of the cost ($6), then identify the next dollar up to pay for the item ($7). While students can play this game without the Cost/Pay Tool, students who struggle with this life skill would benefit from using the Cost/Pay Tool when initially working on this skill.
This packet contains items needed to create a board game in a file folder to practice the Dollar Up Method. Use a regular manila file folder for the game board. Print out the game cards on card stock. Laminate the file folder and game cards to make everything last longer. All you need is game pieces and dice!
The Dollar Up Board Game packet contains the following:
Page 1: Cover Page for Board Game - tape on outside of file folder
Pages 2-3: These two pages are the game board. Tape page 2 on the inside left of the file folder; tape page 3 to the inside right side of the file folder.
Pages 4-13: These are the game cards. When a player lands on a "$" space, the student picks a card and states the appropriate purchase amount. Beginner students can use the Cost/Pay Tool (available on my store) to help them figure out the answer. If a students selects a "WILD CARD", the teacher or another student can come up with a price for the student to solve.
Pages 14-19: These are the scoresheets. When a student gets an answer correct, the scorekeeper can keep track of how many answers each player got right. The most correct answers wins!
