WorkLife English: a Competency-Based Reading / Writing Book 2: English in Everyday Life, Chapter 4 / “Food & Things,” pages 46-61
Who It’s For: New Readers / Writers of Data & Phrasing in Menus, Checks, Math Equations, Plurals & Possessives, Measures, Labels, Shopping Lists, & More
Why You Need It: (Just about) Everybody eats, drinks, and deals with food + amounts (or money) in everyday life. Here’s (high) beginning material for (all language-skills) practice in use of edibles, money, & amount-related vocabulary (with plurals & possessives) in realia (simulations of real objects) and other practical contexts.
What You’ll / They’ll Do:
 In Part One / Read & Understand, scan and understand simulated menus. Improve comprehension and other skills further with real-life realia.
 In Part Two / Information, extract data from a sample restaurant check. With given amounts, read and write math calculations. Use these as models for dealing with real-life bills.
 In Part Three / Spelling, go over the letters used to spell more possibly confusing consonant sounds. Review rules for regular & irregular plural and possessive forms. Follow these in exercises that follow.
 In Part Four / Read & Write, insert words and phrases for (amounts or numbers of) foods, costs, people, and items in lists.
