Social Studies!!! ECONOMICS PROJECT!!!

Your child received the packet to begin working on his/her business for our Classroom Economy Project this month! We are excited to begin! The loan contracts that I have received thus far look FANTASTIC!! They are due tomorrow (2/5), along with the Getting Started form that is in the packet. Just leave it stapled, I will walk around and take a look at them tomorrow in class.

There is a timeline of due dates in the packet. I will send display boards home next week, but they do not need to come back to school until the Friday before our "shopping days", or even the day of...but that makes me nervous! ;)

I hope your child has fun with this and thinks outside the box! Creativity can run wild!

If you have questions feel free to email me back or stop in!
