shopping

Kaytie and Nate have learned about coin values in their Horizons math. So, for school the other day, I let them go shopping.
I made these cards by printing sheets of clip art off the computer, cutting them out and gluing them on 1/2 an index card. I bought circle price tags at Walmart and wrote various prices on them.


I put all the cards in a deck, and, holding them so that the kids couldn't see the prices, I let them choose 5 items they wanted to buy. Then they laid out those five cards and figured out the correct change with their coins.
