Fruit Smoothies for Sale {Counting Money Unit}

I had so much fun making this little unit.  It was created for teaching students how to identify money, count money and solve story problems involving money. It has a fruit smoothie stand theme and a variety of activities for students to practice money skills.  Click on the picture for the link to the product in my store!

I created this unit to use to with students at various levels from coin identification to multi-step word problems. I will use these materials for special education and for RTI intervention. It is pretty comprehensive for teaching students how to count money and solve word problems involving counting money and can be used in the general education curriculum as well.

I hope you love it! If you do, please rate me and follow me. I really appreciate it!

Thank you so much!

I thought, “God, why don’t You do something?”
Well, I just couldn’t bear the thought of
People living in poverty

Children sold into slavery
The thought disgusted me
So, I shook my fist at Heaven
Said, “God, why don’t You do something?”

He said, “I did, I created you”
