Filling Out a Deposit Slip
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Josh just opened his new checking account. Kate, an office person at the bank, promised him she would teach him how to use it. Josh arrived at the bank at three o'clock sharp.
 
2     Kate saw Josh and waved for him to come into her office. "Hello," she said, "it's nice to see you again."
 
3     "Great to see you, too," Josh said. "I'm so glad you're going to help me with my new checking account. Where do we start?"
 
4     "Let's start with deposit slips," Kate said. "After all, you can't take money out of the bank unless you have put some in it! You gave me $50 to start your account yesterday. Do you have more to deposit today?"
 
5     "I have this check I got from my aunt for my birthday. Can I put that in my account?" Josh asked.
 
6     "Sure, that will be great," Kate told him. She showed him a deposit slip. She told Josh there were some in the back of his starter kit from the bank. She said there would also be some in the back of every book of checks he receives. And if Josh gets to the bank and doesn't have a deposit slip with him, he can use one the bank supplies at the desk.
 
7     Kate pointed to the deposit slip. "The ones that come with your checks will already have your name and account number on them. If you use one of the bank's deposit slips, you will have to fill in that information. If you don't remember your account number, the teller can look it up for you."
 
8     Kate began with the right-hand side of the deposit slip. "This is where you put the money amounts," she said. She showed Josh the first line of boxes. "This line is for cash. You count up all the bills and coins you have to deposit and put the amount in the boxes. The dollars and cents are separated by a line. Do you have any cash to deposit today?"
 
9     "No," Josh said, "just this check."
