These worksheets are designed to allow students to practice money skills with simple combinations of coins and combinations of bills. I made them for a group of students in special education who wanted to have homework worksheets like their peers but who needed simplified tasks. They would be effective for general education students learning money skills as well as for special education students of all ages working on use of money. They produce a permanent product that can be used for alternate assessments. Although they were designed as worksheets, they could also be put on file folders and laminated to be reusable.
**This product is available as part of a larger bundle including a kit for setting up structured work systems for students with autism and special needs. If you are in need of schedule visuals and materials for the work system itself at intermediate and secondary ages, please check out: Structured Work System Secondary Starter Bundle LIfe Skills Kit and Tasks
The students cut the item with the price and glue it to the space next to the collection of money. Each worksheet revolves around a store with items and prices and 10 problems with either combinations of coins or combinations of bills ($1-$20). There are 35 worksheets total that include the following:
5 worksheets with combinations of pennies up to 10 cents
