My students need paper money, plastic coins, a cash register, and money matching cards to be able to promote money recognition and amounts to help with functional goals.
My class is a self contained classroom. Each any every one of my students has different needs and are all unique. Since all of my kiddos have disabilities we want to ensure they have their functional needs met. Money recognition and money handling is a very important skill for them to learn.
I have 8 and counting wonderful and unique students.
They all learn in different ways and need different types of instruction. Each of my students have different disabilities and our main goal is to be able to teach them how to be independent so they will be able to survive on their own once they have finished school. As a class we work on individual goals and making sure that the basic foundations or learning are exercised everyday and improved. We work on basic number recognition, letter recognition, small math facts, simple reading, and handwriting. We continuously review and check for understanding since maybe concepts are difficult for my students to grasp. They have made tremendous gains in the past year and I look forward to see them grow and improve.
In our classroom our main focus is being able to be independent. We want to give each student the opportunity to learn skills that will promote independence. One of the most important skill that each student will need to learn is being able to identify money and be able to have the skills for money handling. Today, our society is greatly influenced by the ability to make money. My goal is to be able to teach my students to be able to understand the concept of money values and understanding what it takes to make money as well as spend money for essential or pleasurable items. Allowing my students to have hands on play money will prompt excellent money awareness and will help them learn how to make different denominations to be able to buy items. They will also have the ability for socialization during structured play when using the money in real world situations.
This project will make a difference in the classroom by giving each student the opportunity to hold and explore the currency world.
They will be able to practice identifying different currency denominations as well as understanding the value of a dollar. These skills will become extremely important as they grow older and begin to enter the work force on their own. They will need to be able to shop for items and know how much to give and how much they should receive back.Read More
