What's Happening in 1st Grade with Ms. Geschwind?

First grade has been learning about money and goods and services over the past 2 weeks. The students have been working hard to earn money and have created their own "mini shops" to sell goods to their friends. They have spent the last week creating their goods and decorating their shops for opening day! Yesterday, the kids finally had the chance to open their shops and sell to one another. They had so much fun! I attached some photos to this email🙂
