The students were giddy with excitement today in anticipation for their first third grade Bank and Store experience in our 5 Star Bakery. They proudly logged their earnings and then set out to see what it was all about. Some students bought items from our Store, but quickly realized that saving would have to be their strategy if they wanted some of the big ticket items. Others, rented from our game room and enjoyed bowling, playing Operation, and building Legos. Lunch bunch was a big seller, too, at the back table.
While some students had money burning a hole in their pockets, others approached this time with a totally different mind set and were determined not to spend a dime. Listening to their reasoning was priceless.In addition, students eager to earn more money filled out Job Applications to try and get hired to work during next week's Bank and Store. Working earns $10 and is a great way to save for something they may have their eye on.
of the student's approach, we are confident that they are learning life
long lessons as they are being rewarded for good behavior. We hope Bank and
Store met each student's expectations.
