it was their first year doing this. it was called market day. EVERY student had to come up with a product to make. it couldn't cost more than $15 to buy ALL the supplies you needed. they had over a month to come up with a plan and make the product. depending on the age of the student, they made a higher quantity of their product.
sawyer made 20 flapping origami birds.
Lincoln made 30 bookmarks.
bailey made 25 "Boo-Loo's".
but I was SUPER proud of bailey. from the beginning, she said she wanted to sew hers. so we came up with a plan together. and she cut, sewed eyes on, sewed the "boo-loo" body, stuffed it, and sewed it shut ALL.BY.HERSELF. it took a LONG time.
the student decided how much money their product would cost by how many tickets it would cost to buy one.
then they set up their "store" in their classrooms, and other classes came to shop.
