Balancing Checkbooks

I am one of those odd ducks who has always enjoyed balancing my checkbook. Back in college I loved sitting down with my statement and my register, calculating the pennies to make sure everything added up... it gave me a sense of control of what little, little, little money I had.

My students have never shared this passion. They find it drudgery (can you imagine?). To make it a little more fun, I created my own exercises, using either the names of people in the building or various characters from popular culture. Take, for example, this one with a Frozen theme:

A little levity makes these activities a lot more enjoyable, especially if you don't particularly enjoy hearing teenagers whine. Sidenote: if you don't particularly enjoy hearing teenagers singing songs from "Frozen," you may want to go a different route.

I created these so that every word and every number is completely editable, so I can go in and create one with any theme I want.

And, of course, I've now made them available to others! They are part of the special deal I'm currently offering - a bundle of over 100 resources in exchange for a $25 donation to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!

You could purchase one, then use it as a template to create different variations of your own, or you could say forget that, I'd rather pay a little more in exchange for not having to invest the time. Your call!
