What better way to get kids focused on money than an ice cream shop? Students will be presented with a short menu of ice cream shop items with a listed price (the cent sign is used and items are priced minimally). They will then answer story problems about the menu. This has been a huge success in my classroom, especially when first beginning to add money and problem solve! More advanced versions will be posted soon.
