Grocery Store Math
Introduction: As you complete this activity, you’ll learn how to save money at the grocery store. Materials: You’ll need paper, a pen or pencil and a calculator. Directions: Family Partner: Ask your child to choose what you’ll have for dinner. Write a menu based on his or her choices. Family Partner and Student: Make a list of the ingredients you need for your dinner menu. Find out what you already have at home. Make a shopping list for the remaining ingredients. Before you go, check the newspaper or grocery store flyer for coupons for the items you need to buy. At the store, find each item on the grocery list. Compare prices to decide which brand of each item to buy. As you wait in the checkout line, estimate what the total cost of your groceries will be. Use a calculator to find the exact amount. Talk About It: What was your total grocery store bill? How much money did you save by using coupons? What would your total have been without coupons? How far off was your estimate from the amount ofmoney the groceries actually cost?

April Family Project
Spring Into a New Season What do you think of when you hear the word spring? Maybe you think of green grass, buds on trees, blooms on flowers, growth of new plants, birth of new animals such as birds and bunnies, coloring eggs, warmer weather, etc. For this month's project, students are bringing home an egg shape (a common symbol of spring) to decorate with their families as they wish; however, each egg must be “cracked” open and have an animal or insect hatching from it. Mammals/birds/amphibians/reptiles/fish/insects that hatch from egg ideas
