| Christmas | Special Education | Life Skills | Shopping | Money | Math | Budget |
Christmas is the perfect time of year for students to practice some budgeting skills with items they love to enjoy purchasing around the holidays! Since many students do not have the ability to practice shopping skills on a day to day basis within the classroom, this download helps to fill a major void. This download includes real world images with a variety of brands and prices to help replicate shopping at an actual retail store.

Specifically designed for special education / life skills students, this packet helps to walk students step by step through the process of purchasing basic Christmas items. Though, any teacher looking to include more real world math skills into their classroom would benefit from the scaffolded support provided.
How You Can Use This In Your Classroom
I have recommended a budget of $275.00 for students to go shopping with, but feel free to adapt this number to differentiate for unique needs in your classroom.
Laminate the worksheets so students can use a vis a vis / expo marker and select what brand of item they would like to buy. Then, depending on needs, use either the dollar up strategy or have students use a calculator to total up the exact amount they have spent. A worksheet is provided to support this process!
This is a great activity that can be used many times to practice budgeting, sight words, money skills, and grocery shopping skills in the classroom!
- 20 Christmas items to go shopping for
- 1 scaffolded worksheet to calculate final total
- 1 writing reflection activity
