Flea Market Fun

Our students were given the opportunity to be bargain shoppers yesterday at the COREM Flea Market.  The kids were asked to donate new and previously owned toys, games and books to create the gym turned market.
Ryan and I showed our classes pictures of people shopping and went over some related vocabulary with the students before heading to the gym.

When it was their turn to enter the market, each child could “buy” two items with the currency they’d been given.  

They surveyed their options carefully.
 The teachers acted as cashiers, taking their money and bagging their purchases.  

One man’s trash really is another man’s treasure.  The kids were overjoyed with the used toys they'd adopted as their own.  

The last few minutes of class were spent playing with the new items. 

Fun was had by all.
