Supermarket Saturday: Halloween


I'm teaming up with the Lesson Deli gals for Supermarket Saturday. Each Saturday we will be bringing you ideas for the classroom and each week will be a different theme. Be sure to follow this blog so you don't miss out on the updates each week. This week we are here with some Halloween products for your classroom.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT:
I like to provide my students with some real world activities as we go through the year. One area I hit on a lot is solving real world problems when money is involved. I created a set of Halloween/Fall Party Task Cards. 


WHAT'S INCLUDED:
This set of task cards includes 20 word problems dealing with shopping for a Halloween Party. Since some people don't do Halloween, I have also included the same word problems but with a Fall Party theme. A recording sheet and answer key is also included.
