(The Wonderful World of Ads - Math is one of the three chapters in the complete book.)
Teach valuable life skills such as, budgeting and nutrition, using a common community resource! By using the students’ own local ethnic grocery store ads in conjunction with these reproducible worksheets, you can simulate real life situations. The Wonderful World of Ads worksheets cover a wide range of academic levels from basic sight words identification and categorizing to the more complex budgeting and menu planning. Teach functional language arts, math and nutrition skills in a fun and meaningful way that really works. The student will learn to apply basic academic skills in a way that is most beneficial to them. You can have the students advance through the worksheets systematically or design an individual program for each student. Since the (free) grocery store ads come out weekly you will always have new material!
I hope you enjoy the sample worksheets which are taken from the book, The Wonderful World of Ads. You can purchase the book in its entirety or buy the individual sections; Language Arts, Math or Nutrition separately.
Math worksheets begin with simple problems like finding and transcribing prices, and then become progressively complex. Students practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills.
