Today at a Glance in our Spanish Immersion Program…
Imagine having the opportunity to create a business at age 8? Well, these children are jumping in hands first into it all! They are challenged to be critical thinkers, collaborative team members and hard workers as they bring to life their mission, plan, produce and now logo for their organic garden “Viva Verde.”
During the last few months, the kids have been getting their hands dirty in the garden germinating, caring for and harvesting their own produce. But in the meantime, they have been busy at the drawing board sketching out their ideas in branding their business and developing products to sell to meet their end of the year goal to be a sustainable business.
Today, they came to class eager to meet with a local graphic designer, Kate Robinson from Point Pacific Design, to help execute their ideas for their own logo. Together, they compiled each others’ creativity into one brilliant design and they can not wait to share it!
Now that they have their business name and logo they will continue to tend to the garden and develop healthy products to sell to the community. These include herbal infused waters and “green” tea bags. Tomorrow, in math my accountants will calculate this month’s earnings and spendings and make goals for the upcoming month in Excel.
