TEACHING MONEY MATTERS LESSON IDEA

 

Here is a money skills lesson idea from one of our teaching members:

 

I used this lesson in my special education class to teach money skills to my students. This can serve as a lesson on money matters or budgeting and even check writing.

Materials:

- Fake money

- Fake checks

- poster paper

 

I first talked about money and the use of it. Next, I asked the students how and what type of jobs they would need to secure the future they wanted.

 

After a few minutes of open discussion of these questions, I showed a large poster board I created with all the students names and an amount to be determined by the teacher.

 

I then hand out fake money to each class member.  The amount again can be determined by teacher.

 

Next, I gave a sheet of charges to each student. These charges can stem from the students not having pencils, paper, or needed supplies. If students need to use other equipment they can be charged for the use of it.

 

Students are to submit the money for these charges.

 

At the end of the class or the week the student with the most money left will be awarded a prize.

 

Students can also be given money for good deeds in the class for the day or week.
