I feel that one of the most important parts of my job is to show kids why they are learning something, and how it will help them out later in life. So as both my 1st and 2nd graders are learning about money, I made a unit that will help me do this. I know that many of my students go grocery shopping with their parents. As this is a real life skill, this unit connects money to daily use and includes showing a given amount of money, adding money, and making change as well as sorting the food. Here is a preview of this FREEBIE.
