 OTHER SKILLS REINFORCED Math - Addition Multiplication

 SUGGESTED GRADE LEVELS   3+ Worksheet is customizable for multiple levels.

 Suggested Money Lesson Plan for this Worksheet   Estimate means to "calculate approximately."    Explain that when shopping, it is useful to keep track of what you are buying by estimating a running total.  Then you will know how much you expect to spend when you get to the cashier.  Besides grocery shopping, can the students think of any other situations where estimates may be useful?

 WORKSHEET Instructions   The student should fill in the first column "estimate" with an estimate of the item.  First calculate the estimate, either to the nearest .10 or dollar, then multiply this estimate times the number of units of the item.  In the second column, keep a running total of the estimates.  Then, the student can learn to more quickly keep track and add items.   This is a random worksheet. You may choose a standard worksheet or customize the worksheet to your teaching needs.   To customize the worksheet, you have several choices (see below).  You may customize this worksheet with the names of your students, or use random names, or mix student names with random names. Make your selections, then press "Get Worksheet."
