Our group has recently started using a new app on the iPad called Next Dollar Up by Limited Cue, LLC. This app helps students with money management and determining the very critical skill of determining 'enough or not enough' to make a purchase. It allows us to become familiar with a wide variety of bill amounts, and we're able to work on single-digit on up to $50.00 purchases.
A product is displayed with a purchase price.
Students are asked to drag the next dollar amount in the space below the product.
A big red X appears on the screen when/if students enter an incorrect amount. The correct number of bills are displayed after the X disappears from the screen. Students are then able to press the play button for another try.
Students are rewarded with a little jingle and star after each successful trial.
Mr. K's class blog consists of teacher and student posts where we'll highlight community and classroom events.
