My students LOVE Scholastic Book Orders (wait, who doesn’t?) When I was teaching adding and subtracting decimals, I decided to let them use their book orders to practice. Students had different tasks to complete using the retail prices (the Scholastic prices didn’t have decimals!).
This is a great centers activity or cooperative group activity. It was a big hit! The kids especially liked the challenge of buying as many books as possible for under $25. Click on the picture below for the PDF.
