Jewish Academy kindergarten runs 'Awesome Snack Store'
The Jewish Academy Kindergarten students proved to be successful entrepreneurs last Friday as they ran the Kindergarten "Awesome Snack Store." The store was a culminating activity to two fantastic units: nutrition and money. The children were store employees, offering delicious snacks to the entire student body. The students not only sold the healthy foods, but learned to market the store by creating a commercial for the WJAO news and designing posters.
In addition, they prepared items for the store and decorated aprons as uniforms. Using the information they learned about coins, the students collected money for the snack items and made change when necessary. In coordination with lessons in Judaica about Tzedakah, all the money collected, over $200, was donated to The Pearlman Food Pantry. The JAO kindergarten students made healthy eating and counting money a winning combination!
