Let me start by saying, my kids LOVEEEEE this activity!!!! And get such great practice too!!

In this activity students will have the option to buy either real or "fake" items out of a school store-- but must FIRST do the math correctly, including applying coupons and sales tax! In my class I go to the dollar store and buy random snacks, gum, pencils, calculators.... etc and my students get the option to "purchase" items. They are SUPER motivated, because they don't get to take anything from my tables of goodies until their math is right, and they haven't went over budget.

Included is a step-by-step worksheet to use figure out the costs, and sheet of coupons that they clip and glue onto desired items. Also, note the photos of a student completed activity and the list of items with prices (class prices, not actual prices) that I buy for this activity.

Here's how I apply this activity:

- Hand out the worksheet and the coupon set, 1 per kid, and explain how the coupons work (off one item vs. total purchase)

- They can go LOOK at items they are interested in purchasing and write down prices.

- Go back to their seats and do the calculations, always showing work.

- When they think they're done, they come up and I'll check things over. If there are mistakes, they go back and fix. If it's correct, I collect their handout and they get to take the items they wanted.
