Room 7 News


Dear Families, 

 Kid Town is coming!! Kid Town is a fun and educational simulation program that is a highlight of first grade. All the first grades participate, and it will take place during the month of March.

We will be creating a town centered around businesses and stores within our classroom.  In our town, the students will “earn” play money by producing items, selling services, and working hard in school.  They will also act as consumers by “spending” their play money at various stores.

Through this simulation the children will learn many social studies concepts related to communities and economies.  Throughout the unit, students will learn the importance of democracy, being a responsible citizen, as well as what it means to be a productive member of a community. Students will also explore basic economic concepts and their role in a free-market economy.

In order to operate our town, we will need some donated items:

 ·      junk mail envelopes or plain white envelopes

·      stickers

·      empty toilet paper tubes with no paper left on it

·      beads and string for necklaces and bracelets

*Please do not feel like you need to donate something from every category or spend money. The goal should be to reuse and repurpose most materials.

We will also celebrate the end of our unit with a Town Meeting.  Please mark your calendars for Thursday, March 29th at 8:30. We will hold our Town Hall Meeting that day, where you will be invited to experience Our Town first-hand. Stay tuned for more information on Kid Town!
