My sister in law was in Tesco doing some shopping and we decided to come along especially since the kids haven't seen their cousins in a while.
I got my list of stuff to get and kids got so excited looking for the stuff together.
Got me thinking how this is such a good exercise for them too. Even my godson's school organized a supermarket school trip last week. I can now see why it will be fun and there's so many things to learn.
1. They learn to look for things on the list (at the same time, reading and matching what's on the list to the signboard or item)
2. They learn about the pricing. How much things are
3. They learn about the process (take things n put in a cart, bring to the cashier, pay, get balance back, put stuff in bag)
Little things that sometimes we take for granted. We do it with the kids all the time but without realizing it, the kids are actually learning quite a bit from such a simple exercise.
We take our kids grocery shopping all the time but we always take them to the same place and it was our first time in the big tesco. Also the first time grocery shopping with their cousins. So this seems more fun.
Before this, I also sat down with my daughter trying to list down the stuff we need to get. Maybe next time, I can teach her how to write them down. Not now.. Soon!
