School's back in session!! Have your students "shop" for their school supplies. Included in this activity are: 3 pages of school supplies, a totaling worksheet where students write what they bought, the quantity of each, the price of each, and then the total, and a short writing piece where they detail what they bought and why they bought it. Essentially, you're tying in ELA with math, which meets the CCSS.
The items that students can buy are: paper, scissors, pencil sharpener, tape, backpack, pen, calculator, glue, pencil, eraser, paper clip, highlighter, crayons, colored pencils, notebook, clipboard, and a sticky note.
EACH item has a price tag on it. Simply have students add, subtract (from a certain dollar amount), or multiply their items.
