Do your students need additional support identifying money, matching dollar amounts to currency and making purchases using the "next dollar up" method?

St. Patrick's Day Counting Money Unit reinforces and progresses these skills for students who struggle with counting and identifying money. beginning with matching dollar to dollar, progressing on to matching prices with dollars, then using the next dollar up method to make a purchase. The currency is in US dollars from $1 to $10. There are 3 levels of learning with 10 cards per level! Additionally, the use of real US dollars in the unit can help students connect these skills to real-world situations and foster greater financial literacy.
This is an excellent resource for Middle or High School students with IEP Math or Money Goals, Transition to Work Students, or Elem students learning money skills. It is a great addition to any math/ supported employment program or math center. These activities can also support Transition Plans!

✤ To Print Task Cards: The Task Cards, as downloaded, are 1/2 page which are great for students that need a larger size. To print 4x6 index card sized task cards, select "2 pages per sheet". To print 3x5 index card sized task cards, select "4 pages per sheet". These are not designed to print directly to index card template paper. What has worked best for my students was to print on heavy duty card stock and laminate.
