Goal

We want to purchase Money Calculators to assist and to promote financial literacy instruction for our students with intellectual disabilities.  

 

What will be done with my students

We have implemented a token economy that focuses on our students' ability to use financial literacy skills in a variety of settings. Our students earn money for showing responsible and respectful behavior in the classroom. They use a checkbook to keep track of their earned and spent money, and then have the opportunity to shop within our classroom store to purchase items for classroom and personal use on a weekly basis.
We are asking for money calculators to assist our students in preparing their daily checkbook balances.  

 

Benefits to my students

The skills that our students learn will increase their overall ability to generalize the learned skills in a variety of settings, especially outside the classroom walls.  

 

Describe the Students

Our students are served within a self-contained MMI middle school classroom. All of our students have an intellectual disability and we have students that have characteristics on the autistic spectrum, physical disabilities, speech and language impairments, and fine/gross motor deficits. Our students are working on functional academic skills within a life skills curriculum in order to obtain more independent living skills.

The budget will cover the cost of 12 money calculators and shipping costs associated with them.
