How Much Are Words Worth?

These two activities combine reading, math, spelling, and money counting for the "ultimate" activity.  The "menus" list food items with spaces below to place Scrabble tiles.  After spelling the word, they are then asked to add up the value of the tiles to get the "price" of the item.  Next, they should count out correct change for the item.  This could be used in a pretend play setting or as a folder game for quiet independent work.

Alternatively, the students could be asked to spell the words, count the number of letters (instead of the Scrabble values), and then count pennies for the price.  Of course, the math aspect could be completely left out as well.
