Classroom grocery store is a fantastic math activity! It has so many variations and can be played throughout the elementary grades!

The variations included focus on the following topics: identifying money, making change, rounding, addition, and subtraction. There are so many ways to play!

There are 42 different cards. Each card has a picture of an item typically found at a grocery store. The name of the item is written on the card along with a price. (I looked long and hard at my local flyers to try to make the prices as accurate as possible!)

In my classroom, I printed out 3 sets of cards. When we use this as a whole class activity, we turn our classroom into a huge store. This allows the students to have some choice in what they are “buying”. I also use this as a center. You can adjust the number of grocery cards accordingly.

Cut out, laminate, and place the cards around your classroom or in a center.

*Two versions: vibrant colored cards and ink-friendly black and white cards are included!

Understand that in adding two-digit numbers, one adds tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose a ten.
