This set includes 40 task cards with fabricated apps with prices for using the next dollar up strategy. In the next dollar up strategy, the student chooses the next dollar up from the price tag so that even without being able to make change, he can make a purchase and know how much he can afford. For instance, if an item costs $3.20, the student would circle / give 4 $1 bills

These can be used in conjunction with my Interactive Next Dollar Instruction Megabundle that includes programs to teach students to use the next dollar up strategy. Twelve of these cards were included in that megabundle as an extra sample as well.

The answer key is included. Because the student answers by circling the dollar bills needed on card, I did not include an answer sheet. However, if you would like one, email me at and I’m happy to make one and send it to you.
