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.
Do you have a teaching idea you
would like to share, or do you have an idea for a new
lesson? Then leave us a
suggestion.
