Today was an exciting day!
In Social Studies we are studying economics. This means we are studying the part of life called the economy. The economy is anyone who makes a choice about their money. There are producers, who sell things, and consumers, who buy things. Today we were the producers. My product that I was selling was a windchime. I sold 2 out of the 5 windchimes I made. That was relatively good. We had to rearrange the entire classroom and we learned about things like rent and business licenses. I did not display it that well in the beginning. That was one of the bad things that happened to me. However, at least I earned one banther. I loved Marketplace today. This is a picture of me and my fellow classmates selling things.
This picture was taken by Ryoko. She is a new student and so she could not understand very much English and therefore she could not make a product. So she took pictures. I think I will sell the ones with green circles and blue stars on them. That is because those were the ones that my customers liked most. I noticed that in the other classrooms somebody who was offering a service. This person was letting people play a sort of game with Nerf guns and the players would pay him for it. He got quite a lot of money.
My feedbacks were quite good. Everybody said yes on everything and only one person said I need improvement. In the middle and end I was holding the wind chimes with my hands. She said I needed something to hold my wind chimes up. The next market place takes place on May 18th. I hope to make as many of my products as I can, and make improvements on them.
I had lots of fun on Market Place Day!
