Welcome Parents and Guardians! This week in class we will be focusing our time on discussing the basics of economics. As we go throughout the week we will be discussing the benefits of budgeting, the concepts of scarcity, and how this influences our spending. We will complete a variety of interactive assignments which will allow the students to think in depth about the concepts we cover in class. On Tuesday we will do an activity which requires the students to look at the different prices of products from various grocery stores. We request that as you and your family go shopping this week, take the time to look at prices and discuss with your child what influences your spending decisions. For a more detailed look on this week’s activities, feel free to look at the lesson plans and invitations posted on other pages. We are looking forward to a great week with your children and lots of excellent learning!
