This class is new this semester. It is a 9-week opportunity to learn a little about running your own business. Students select a product or service to market. They learn about pricing, materials cost, target audiences, and other parts of business. At the end of the term, we will have a market open to the middle school students who are not in the class to purchase items.

Currently, students have selected the items (goods) they wish to create. They have created materials lists for what they will need. They have chosen a business name and logo. Next week we will take a look at their target audience. We will complete logos and practice working with money and receipts. Finally, each student will design a workstation that will help them be more efficient with their production.

MS Personal Finance

Today, we were supposed to watch a documentary about Finance. However, I watched it last night and did not feel that it was appropriate for our classroom. Therefore, we watched a nutritional documentary about the dangers of sugar.

We will complete the term learning about various financial institutions and their purposes. We will also look into beginning the search for scholarships, etc. for post-high school education, whether that be college, trade school, or on-the-job training.

Students continue to learn more about nutrition. Ask your student what he/she learned today about the most “dangerous” food in our diet. We will be spending time finding out what nutrients and calories are in our favorite homecooked meals as well as our favorite fast food meals. We will watch portions of documentaries on food an nutrition also. This will take us to the end of the semester.
