SHOPPING AND MONEY VALUES LESSON IDEA

 

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

 

Objectives:

- For students to learn the value of money.

- ESL students to learn the value of the different coins and bills.

- The value of food items.

- The concepts of 2 for $2.00 etc. - The use of decimals.

 

Grades:

I used the following lesson with my beginner 3rd Grade ESL students.  It may be modified for other grade levels.

 

 

Materials:

- Each Student gets a store Supermarket Flyer.

- One sheet of paper Marker Classroom play Register Classroom Money or real money.

 

 

Classification:

Students must choose at least two items from each food group.

 

 

Preparation:

Students prepare a shopping list. They must add the total of their items.

 

They are each given a certain amount of money to spend. This depends on the math concept being taught. For example: They may not have enough so: "How much more do you need?" or "What is the change?" etc. Students must calculate their change so they can "shop".

 

Each student can take a turn at the register. The shoppers come to the register with their list and their money. The "cashier" must give the correct change.

 

*With beginner ESL students, this lesson may take a week.
