Overview - SHOPPING BASKET WORKSHEETS
Shopping Basket Worksheets is a comprehensive collection of real-life, practical math featuring 48 addition and 48 subtraction problems. Participants are shown how to keep track of the amount of money being spent when shopping at a grocery store. They start with three food items on a worksheet and progress to up to six items, perfect for students of varying math abilities.
While some individuals do well when asked to add the prices of foods together as they shop, other students understand the budget process better when asked to subtract the food prices from a starting budget. This program features both methods which gives teachers the flexibility to tailor instruction accordingly.
The 96 reproducible worksheets have simple, clear pictures of different foods for participants with little or no reading skills. On the Addition Shopper worksheets, the fun picture sentences and large (+) signs help participants understand that every time they "place" a food item in their shopping basket, they must add to find a new total. On the Subtraction Shopper worksheets, the same format helps them understand that they must subtract to find a new balance.
The program also helps students prepare for using a calculator to keep track of expenditures on future grocery trips. As participants develop the necessary math skills to correctly complete the worksheets, they will learn to stay in budget. These easy-to-follow worksheets are equally effective for individuals who need basic math practice without the aid of a calculator.
Gives complete step-by-step instructions for both the addition and subtraction portions of the program, including Quick Start instructions for when participants become familiar with the program. There is also a reproducible Answer Key Progress Chart included in the guide. The three-ring binder contains all the worksheets and is divided into tabbed sections to easily find the Addition and Subtraction worksheets.
