Improves Money-Handling Skills
Reading Level Nonreaders
Interest Level 2 - 12
The Where Does My Money Go? games were created to teach basic money counting and shopping skills in a fun and relaxed setting. Two to four players conduct money transactions at the grocery store, restaurant, mall, and shopping mart using realistic currency.
These educational and engaging games focus on ways to earn money, pay bills, and deal with unexpected expenses in the “real world.” Where Does My Money Go? is perfect for students and adults with learning differences as well as nonreaders or low-level readers.
Level 1 currency is limited to quarters and bills ($1s, $5s, $10s, and $20s) reinforcing the “next dollar” teaching method. Level 2 adds pennies, nickels, and dimes. In this more advanced version, many of the “Pay” and Get Money amounts differ from Level I in that a variety of coins must be used.
The easy-to-use Teacher's Guide provides instructions for both Level 1 and 2, variations of play, and suggestions for focusing on communication skills during play. The objective of the game is not to win or lose, but to improve a wide range of money handling skills. These include:
- Coin and Bill Recognition
- Counting Money
- Handling Money
- Making Purchases
- Ways to Earn Money
- Dealing with Unexpected Windfalls
- Dealing with Financial Setbacks
- Spending Money on Necessities
- Spending Money on Luxury Items
- Number Recognition
- Following Directions
