Hello! Happy first day of Spring! Your child is learning all about needs, wants, goods, services, and earning an income during our economics unit. We will be talking about the differences between producers and consumers and spending and saving our money.

A letter is coming home about a special project in which your child will be creating and running their own business. 🙂 The guidelines are below. Please return the bottom portion of the letter to school by  Friday, March 24. The “goods” that they are producing are due to school by Tuesday, March 28. If you need any paper for the project, please let me know and I can send some home for the project. 🙂

We will be creating our storefronts at school, as well as a commercial/advertisement for our products. 🙂 Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about the project!
