Get Ready


Math gamesWhat you'll need:
Grocery store coupons and paper

What to do:

  1. Involve the family in making a shopping list. Mark checks or tallies next to each item to indicate the number needed. This helps children learn to collect data.
  2. Involve the children in predicting how much milk or juice will be needed for a week. You might decide to estimate by cups, explaining that 4 cups are equal to a quart and 4 quarts are equal to a gallon. Also, try estimating by liters. How does a liter compare to a gallon?
  3. Choose coupons that match the items on the grocery list. Discuss how much money will be saved on various items by using coupons.

Parent tip:
Preparing a shopping list from advertised prices can help children with mental math and estimation.
