Budgeting Bundle for High School Special Education


Save 20% with this bundle on Budgeting skills. Budgeting skills can be so challenging even for the best of us, but imagine if you were living with a disability like autism. This bundle on teaching budgeting skills is meant to help students in a life skills high school setting understand what it means to make and follow a budget. This bundle on budgeting includes 2 versions to target those students who are early readers and those who are non-readers. There are also practice worksheets included to allow students to continue working on these important skills.

I made every attempt to keep the content age appropriate yet usable for multiple learning levels.

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. Remember, you will gain credit toward future purchase on tpt as you leave more and more feedback!!

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future.

You can get these units separately if that better fits you needs. Just click the links below:
