Practice math and money while buying school supplies

Hey everyone!

School year is about to start, and that means buying school supplies.  Whether your student is just starting kindergarten or going into high school buying school supplies is great math practice.  Give your child a budget, and help them stick to it when buying supplies.  For older students help them with percentages by figuring out discounts on school clothes.  Practice adding and subtracting decimals by adding together items in a purchase, and subtracting to find the change.  There are many ways to incorporate math practice while getting ready for school.  I hope this tip helps, and as always .... HAVE FUN :D
