**This product is now available as part of 2 bundles. One bundle is a set of money skillsMoney Essentials for Special Education
It is also 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 product package contains a total of 10 black and white worksheets. There are 3 worksheets with amounts to $5 and 7 worksheets with amounts to $10. Students can use the number line of the dollars at the top to count how many dollars are needed. These worksheets are designed so that the students use the Next Dollar Up strategy to determine how many dollar bills are needed to buy a product. Using this strategy, you look at a price (say $1.50) and you give one more dollar than the number of dollars in the price (you give $2). So, if you want to buy something that has a price for 4.50, you give $5 and get back the change.
I developed these worksheets as a functional curriculum teacher resource for middle and high school students in special education who are working on understanding money. The set would work well with younger students as well as part of either the core curriculum or to meet IEP goals. For more ideas about the Dollar Up Strategy see my blog post
