Description: Great activity for Christmas! This is an alternative for kids who struggle with the Next Dollar method, and transfers into what we experience during our community-based instruction outings. My students come with $5's, $10', and $20's when we go out into the community, so this is a great way to practice making purchases using what they usually bring. I also teach my students to pay with the smallest amount, so there is a card that marks the larger bill wrong. There are 24 self-correcting cards featuring whole dollar and dollars and change amounts. You can hide any cards that you do not want to use. The cards consist of pictures, a price, and a field of two bills to choose from. Bills range from $1.00 to $50.00. Students can answer by clicking or touching the correct answer. They hear a “ding” for the correct answer and an “oops” for an incorrect answer.
