The fog is beginning to settle in as the wind begins to howl a little louder. It is that time of here again - Halloween is almost here! Give your students an opportunity to practice their real world budgeting skills with this fun, Halloween themed download. Since many students do not have the ability to practice shopping skills on a day to day basis within the classroom, this download helps to fill a major void. This purchase includes real world images with a variety of brands and prices to help replicate shopping at an actual retail store. 

Specifically designed for special education / life skills students, this packet helps to walk students step by step through the process of purchasing items people purchase around Halloween time. Though, it is important to note, that any teacher looking to include more real world math skills into their classroom would benefit from the scaffolded support provided.


How You Can Use This In Your Classroom

I have recommended a budget of $200.00 for students to go shopping with, but feel free to adapt this number to differentiate for unique needs in your classroom.

Laminate the worksheets so students can use a vis a vis / expo marker and select what item they would like to buy. Then, depending on needs, use either the dollar up strategy or have students use a calculator to total up the exact amount they have spent. A scaffolded worksheet is provided to support this process!

This is a great activity that can be used many times to practice budgeting, sight words, money skills, and shopping skills in the classroom!


Purchase Includes: 

- 20 Halloween themed items to go shopping for

- 1 scaffolded worksheet to calculate final total

- 1 writing reflection activity
