It was a bright and sunny Monday morning when we arrived at 730am in the classroom to finish up last minute things, hang signs and balloons, decorate and set out samples for our Grand Opening of Kid's Mart.
Kid's Mart started out as idea in the minds of Tanya Carter and I. It is a place we created in our kid's Kindergarten Classroom for our kids, their classmates and their teacher to enjoy for the rest of this school year. Their class voted to name their creative play space Kid's Mart. This creative play space is equipped with a market, a house area and an office.
The kids were really looking forward to Monday's Grand Opening of Kid's Mart and cannot wait to play in their new creative play area!
Here are some pictures of how our day went.

Everyone got to finally have a look inside of kid's mart, get a guided tour, listen to the rules, try samples of juice and fruits that were on special and enter to win door prizes. Everyone's names were pulled and everyone won a door prize.
Here are what the different spaces of the room look like.
Everyone's name is written on a star.
Mrs. Wasserman will select a weekly star worker & put it on the plaque.
