This bundle includes 5 different stores where your students can practice shopping for shoes, hardware, sporting goods, toys, and winter clothes.
Each Life Skills Shopping Activity includes everything you need for a differentiated activity:
✅ Sales Flyers: Each store includes 2 or 3 differentiated shopping flyers that are identical but have varied prices in whole dollars, 25 cent increments, and more complex change.

- Writing the price of a single item from a flyer with no picture cues
- Writing a check to make a single-item purchase.
✅ Print and Go Worksheets:

- 5 cash purchase worksheets requiring students to total the amount needed to purchase 2 to 3 items, circle the bills that could be used, and determine the amount of change that would be received.
- 1 debit card worksheet where they are given a debit card balance and asked if they can purchase specific items from that store.
✅ Answer keys are included
Put the sales flyers in a page protector, print out the worksheets, and either cut out the task cards for single use or put them in a photo album or laminate for re-use.
