## Grocery Store Math

Grocery Store Math activities are built around the concept that children can and should learn in context of ‘real life’ activity and experiences.

Most adults use more math skills in the activity of visiting the grocery store and selecting and purchasing the weekly food items for the family, than in any other activity on routine. By providing learning activities, as a family, around this chore, children will learn concepts and skills in experiences that will engage them authentically. The descriptions below show the types of standards that can be easily experienced within the grocery store setting. Additionally, resources which reinforce this concept can be purchased from TeachersPayTeachers store by clicking on the link. As resources are developed, the links in the sections become ‘live’ and the resource can be accessed.
