The K2 children have been learning about goods and services as part of their How We Organize Ourselves unit of inquiry. As a culminating project, they will be hosting an ECC Market on Tuesday, March 26th. Children will be selling goods they have made themselves, including robots, paper airplanes, cookies and beverages. As well as providing services such as a nail salon, face painting and games for the Discovery and K1 classes.
Please send 20,000 VND to school with your child on Tuesday so s/he can enjoy shopping at the K2 market (If there’s anything left).
