The only preparation you will need is to cut the toy money if you are using it. You do not need to though it just brings the worksheets to life.
The first page is the front page which can be added to the kid’s folder if required. You do not need to print this out if you are saving ink. (I know how expensive it can be!)
Buying books at the bookstore
The second and third pages are the actual worksheets that must be printed. If you prefer, you could print in black and white to save ink costs.
The first page shows 20 different children’s books all with today’s Amazon prices.
The second page has the 16 questions all written on an empty bookshelf.
The children will need to look at the previous page to find the answers, they will need copy paper or a composition book for the questions that need calculating.
Example questions include:
- What is the most expensive book?
- Ordering the books from the most expensive to the cheapest.
- How many books can I buy for $10?
- What book costs $11.90?
- What book is more expensive? Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Amelia Bedelia?
If you are using it with the printed money (which I highly recommend laminating so you can keep using it for other activities) ask the children to give you the money for the books.
Or show the correct amount of change with the money.
If you prefer to use pretend play money I recommend these from Learning Resources.
Books that teach children about money
These are the best financial literacy books for middle school students and younger:
Money Ninja is a great book that talks about saving, investing, and donating.
The everything kids money book is aimed at upper elementary-aged students but is excellent.
