InMo Projects

Students has been working on InMo (Intrinsic Motivation) Projects for the past couple weeks. The purpose of this assignment is for students to answer questions they are curious and passionate about. Ask your child what questions they asked and how they are searching for their answers. On June 14th students will share their InMo Projects with each other.


We will have our Business Day on June 14th from 12:45-1:45. Business Day is a chance for students to create their own business and products to sell to other students. Their products can be anything from games, services, food, drinks, or any other marketable product. The best products are normally the easiest/cheapest to make, the low costs increases your profit. There will be a 50 RMB limit for supplies. Please encourage your child to be creative and cost effective. Check out my new class website, http://mrsk5a.weebly.com, I hope it is more user friendly. Please let me know how you like it or what I can improve.
