"One More" Method- Teaching kids with disabilities to purchase items

Although I'm an elementary teacher, I think that teaching money math skills is an important functional skill to start teaching kids at a young age. We work on counting and using money daily in our classroom. Students get paid for completing classroom jobs and we take two trips a month to a nearby gas station for students to spend their money.

These are the "1 More Money Mats" I use in our classroom and an example of how we use them.

Note: I know that a lot of teachers use fake money  in the classroom to teach money math... However, I avoid fake/play money 100% of the time! Nothing is worse than teaching kids money math with play money and going to the mall with real money and getting the deer in the highlights look.
