Our shops are almost ready to open. The goods and services have been secured, the signs are almost done - it's almost time to set up shop! Based on our market survey, it looks like the average cost of our goods/services will most likely be $1. Students have been working hard to earn money throughout past month and they are ready to shop! Goods such as "goo", "bookmarks", and "chatterboxes" will be sold. Services such as "massages", "a disco", and "Basketball Hoop Shot" are just a few of the services that will be sold. Looks to be a fun and fruitful day!

In 1ài , we laughed our way through this book. I was trying to read and sound just like Grandpa, but the room filled with giggles (including myself) and I had to stop and compose myself, while Amelia took over for a page! It was then that I realized that we had a more a few "usual suspects" in our classroom. Listen below by clicking on the book and check out our "usual suspects"! Miss Phyllis
G1ai took a stroll around Kennedy Town in search of goods and services. Check out our slide show and see if your child can tell you if the shop is selling a good or a service. Were there more shops selling goods or services? You'll be surprised at what we found out!
Here are just a few items Sarah purchased at previous Market Days in Grade 1. It's the best day of the whole year - for students and consumers! Sarah talked to the kids about goods and services. She also encouraged the students to work hard and try their best to earn Lawler Dollars. Also once the big day arrived, how it was important not to spend all their money right away - unless of course it was something so cool that they just had to have it before it sold out. She discussed a fair price and advised the students not to charge too much, keeping in mind that they also needed to make money. She introduced the "Bargain Basement". If you still have items at the end of the day - sell them at a discount. Whew - the kids have a lot to think about before the big day!
