MARKETPLACE JAN. 16th and 17th

Montage of students products for Marketplace

MARKETPLACE JAN. 16th and 17th 

  Cabaniss 3rd grade has been hosting a marketplace for 11 years. It started the first year Cabaniss was open. Then, the Marketplace was limited to just students in the third grade selling to each other using pretend money. Six years ago, Mrs. Williams, who is now our math specialist, suggested that they take the event to the next level and use real money. This is when the marketplace opened up to the entire student body.  Each year students learn about operating their own business. They learn about product manufacturing, advertising, and sales. They also put their money sense into practice as the run the cash register. 

  The 3rd grade has earned more than $1,000 for their grade level during this two-day event. Last year the school used this money to purchase two Chrome books for each third-grade classroom. "Our biggest challenge is to get students to remember to bring money on these days," Said Mrs. Seeton. "Everyone wants to buy products but they do not always remember to bring money." This year the students are trying to work out a way to help students remember to bring cash. 

 Products for sale this year include Dream-Catchers, beautiful flower pens, designer bookmarks, cool Owl cups, colorful picture frames, handcrafted airplanes and rocket ships, fingernail painting, and minute massages. There will also be cookies, brownies, and drinks. 

 Help the 3rd grade make this the best year! Remember to bring at least five dollars this Wednesday and Thursday.
