Product Description

This math center provides a great hands-on opportunity for kids to add and subtract to solve word problems involving money. The center is a very versatile activity that allows the teacher to easily provide differentiated instruction for the various levels of ability in one classroom.

Math objectives of the unit are to solve the following types of word problems involving money:

* Cut and paste or draw coins to indicate a given amount of money.

* Cut and paste or draw coins to show a given amount of money two different ways.

* Use addition to solve a word problem.

* Use subtraction to solve a word problem.

* Choose the correct operation to solve a word problem.

* Solve two-step word problems.

* Determine the amount of change due after a shopping transaction.

Directions and materials to create your own center are included. Click on the preview to see more of the "supermarket."

It does take a bit to set up the supermarket but once it is constructed on a tri-fold board it can be displayed whenever you want to provide reinforcement. When not in use it can be folded and placed out of the way.

Sheets with 4 word problems to a page can also be used as work sheets instead of posting in the supermarket.

Special Note: I used the “Supermarket Shopper” for many years in my self-contained Special Education classroom. It was quite effective and the kids loved it because everyone had a challenge on their level of competence. Unlike their regular education experiences, students were able to be active participants. Directions to provide differentiated instruction are included in the resource.

This addition and subtraction sections of this resource could effectively be used in 1st and 2nd grade using appropriate numbers. (5 cents + 3 cents= ) Pictures of food items would allow non-readers to understand word problems.

Customer Tips:

Save \$\$\$.

Did you know that Teachers Pay Teachers gives TpT credits, saving \$\$\$ on future purchases, when you purchase a product and leave feedback?

You get one TpT Credit for every \$ you spend on TpT--but only when you leave a fair rating and a comment. TpT rounds up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a \$4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 credits is worth \$5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth \$2.50, for example. It’s a great deal and a great way to save \$\$\$. It’s a win, win. You save money and I get feedback to help me determine which products are most valuable for your classroom. Then I can create more of what you need.

How to get TPT credit to use on your future purchases:

• Please go to your My Purchases page (you may need to login). Beside each purchase you'll see a Provide Feedback button. Simply click it and you will be taken to a page where you can give a quick rating and leave a short comment for the product. TpT will issue you credit and keep track of the credits you earn.

• Look for the green star next to my store logo and click it to become a follower. You will be the first to know about my product discounts, new product launches and freebies.
