Grocery lets kids practice sorting, counting
and decision-making skills as they shop, re-stock
and ring up each other's grocery purchases.
What's the Best Way to Help Here?
Remember the children in our lives have been
watching our behavior for quite awhile! Please
help them to:
Respect the other children in these places.
Cooperative play is necessary.
If you take items out, please put them back
in the appropriate places. Ice Cream goes
in the Dairy Section, dog food in the Pet
food section, etc.
If you're with a group, please use the shopping
lists outside the door.
If you are a family try not to encourage them
to fill their shopping cart to overflowing--
remember you will be responsible for helping
put things back.
Learning to run the cash registers can be
fun. If your child can read, follow the bird
cartoon for directions. If your child is not
reading as of yet it will be necessary for
you to coach her/him.
Can they show you the differences in
items such as canned or boxed products
in the store or vegetables on the pizza
list? How do you count money or make
change? What foods are best for you?
