Practical Money Skills in the Classroom

Sharing is caring!

If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you know that I LOVE digital task cards. I also love working on money skills in the classroom so let’s put them together! Whether it’s Google, SeeSaw or BOOM, digital task cards give students the chance to interact with the material and learn. But, I do have a preference for BOOM. You can read more about BOOM in this blog post!

Boom Cards are digital task cards that you can play on the Boom Learning website. Boom Cards are accessible from ANY device with an internet connection including laptops, iPads, android tablets, kindle fire tablets, interactive whiteboards, and even your smartphone! There is a free version and also a paid subscription. With the paid subscription, you are able to track students’ learning, which is awesome during this season of online learning. 

Digital task cards and BOOM cards are awesome for so many reasons. They are easy to access, engaging and interactive. They are self-correcting. And, they are NO PREP! That means, no laminating, no cutting, no gluing, and no velcro!!

Grocery Store Next Dollar Up Boom Cards

So without further adieu, here are the Grocery Store Next Dollar Up digital task cards. In this bundle, you will find task cards to teach the “next dollar up” strategy. There are 10 sets of grocery store task cards. They are self-checking and very user friendly. The task cards give prompts to move to the next card if the user gets the answer correct. They are perfect for working on money skills in the classroom. The task cards give prompts to try again if the user gets the answer incorrect.

So here’s how it works. Students open the digital task cards and they will see a picture of a grocery item and the cost. For example, a picture of a loaf of bread with the price $4.69 beside it. Underneath the picture and price, there are three boxes: $4.00, $5.00, and $3.00. Students click on one of the boxes. In this case, the user should click on $5.00 because that is the next dollar up. If they click on the right answer, they are prompted to move on to the next card. If they get the answer wrong, they will be prompted to try again. It is the perfect way to practice money skills in the classroom or a virtual setting too!
