As I walked into my classroom today I was greeted with smiling children holding garbage bags full of empty groceries. I put out the call last week for empty grocery store items and my parents delivered! We needed to decide how to sort all this stuff! We broke it down into boxes, things for the fridge, things you can drink and can/bottles. Then we sorted. We have to buy things in the grocery store, so all our items needed to be priced. I showed the students how to make a dollar sign, gave them some labels and they were off. We have a good deal on cereal, $16.00 for a box! We then discussed how you must make a list to go to the grocery store, have money and take some bags. We even had one little entrepreneur make cards in the writing center to sell in the grocery store! They had a hoot and the learning from this one activity is endless. I LOVE Kindergarten!
