Product Description
I love using real life math with my students! It makes math real to them and they can see how they will use math in their every day lives.

This product is one of my favorite lessons because it covers place value in a fun and engaging way... by writing checks!

The checks are provided in both COLOR and BLACK and WHITE and you can print as many as you need.

There is even a check register so that students can keep track of the money in their accounts.

Students will be able to:
-write numbers in standard form
-write numbers in written form
-add and multiply to determine amounts
-subtract with decimals to balance their checkbook
-sign their name
-and fill out a check properly!

I have provided fun stations for students to visit and also a game that I like to call "Pick and Chick and Write a Check". Students get to choose from a series of baby chicks and figure out the dollar amount to write on their checks. It is great for partner work or independent work for your fast finishers.

I hope you enjoy this lesson as much as I do!
