Use the following lessons to learn how to use a check register, or checkbook.  The check register is used for keeping track of your money in your checking account.  In the check register, you write down all the transactions that occur in your account, such as checks you write, and deposits you make.  Record all transactions immediately in your check register.

 

Also, see our other money categories for our comprehensive check lesson material, and to practice check writing including writing dollars and cents.

After viewing the above lessons, here are some additional points to keep in mind when recording transactions in your check register:

 

Be sure to keep a record of all your written checks in your check register.  Also, keep track of your check numbers.  Each new written check should be written with the next available check number.

 

Any time you write a check, make a deposit, or withdraw money from an ATM, write it in your checkbook immediately.  Also, keep your account balance column updated, so you will always know how much money is in your account.
