This Essential Supplemental is always a favorite math activity before Christmas. Students who don't celebrate Christmas have an alternate cover that simply says "My Wish Book" that can be used for any holiday celebrated in which presents are given. Students cut out items they wish for and glue them down in their wish book. I send home a letter in early November asking for holiday catalogs. I also allow students to find and print items online. They need to show their work and correctly add the dollar amounts together. Each page includes space for 2 items, and a page total. Students ultimately find a grand total for the entire booklet. I usually let them check this total with a calculator but feel free to change anything to suit your needs. This download includes a student direction page, sample wish book page, wish book cover pages (2 choices), and 4 blank wish book pages. The kids LOVE it! *Please note that the thumbnail pictures aren't showing the text lining up correctly. The preview download is a more accurate representation of the download.
