This is a great idea! I'd love to hear any other activies you might know of that are good for children with special needs. My daughter has such a hard time with money even though she is almost 16. I have a hard time with trying to figure out new ways of working with her, I end up getting too hung up on the details, like the change above.
Thanks! I'll try to do some more posts...I'll have to look around my classroom to remind me what I do :)With many of my students, I focus on simply knowing that when they pay with a bill larger than the total, they need to wait for change back. I figure it really isn't necessary for them to be able to know exact change - how often do adults pay with exact change anyway!Also, I know the transition students at my school deal a lot with gift cards / debit cards. This way the students are able to pay independently, and just need to be aware of the amount on the card and how much they will be spending.
