Students Enjoy Junior Achievement

The fourth grade class was once again privileged to have Mrs. Punches, an Onekama resident, come into the classroom. She is our annual volunteer for Junior Achievement, also known as JA. She came in once a week for five weeks. Thank you Mrs. Punches for volunteering your time to teach students about our region. ~Mrs. Bennett

This year we did a program called Junior Achievement. We did lot of interesting, fun, and exciting games. One of the games we played was called running a hotdog stand. Each group got a game board, a mover for each person, and everyone got a piece of paper to keep track of your score. We also got one dice per group. Then we went around rolling the dice, and whoever got the highest number goes first. The first two turns you had said expence you had to right down however much it said on the space. Then you got to subtract them. Then you would do the same thing if you landed on revenue but you would  you would add the last two together. Then you would subtract your expenses from your revenue, and whoever had the most revenue left won. I think Junior Achievement was a lot of fun.  ~Lauren


This year we did a program named Junior Achievement. We played a lot of games and also we were learning things at the same time. My favorite game was a business activity. My teacher put 4 different signs up in our room. My JA teacher would say a name and we had to go to which one he or she did. Then she would say which one he or she did. JA was really fun and our teacher was very nice and she made it better by making games. If my friend asked me if it was fun or not I would say yes it was really fun. I would do JA because of how much fun it is and how much you learn from it.  ~Peyton

 


This year we did a program called Junior Achievement. We played a lot of games. My favorite two were the hot dog stand game, that taught us how to manage our money and how to run a business. How to do it is there are multiple people and everyone gets a different color chip, and a paper to track their revenue or loss. You also get tips and can advertise. Another fun game is called the computer supply chain game. How you play that game is everyone gets put into groups and gets a paper of a computer that needed parts from other countries. Every group was a different country. My groups county was Canada. We sold the Canada monitor, that we traded for a South Coria screen, and the process went on and on until you finished your computer. Mrs.. Punches was really nice and really fun. She gave us a lot of papers to help us start a business. I also learned about what an entrepreneur is. An entrepreneur is a person who uses resources to start a business. I learned a lot and had loads of fun during Junior Achievement. I hope I can do it again next year.  ~Libby

 

 

    Junior Achievement was really fun and we met a woman and her name is Mrs. Punches. She taught us a lot of stuff about Junior Achievement. She also taught us a lot about a Entrepreneur and that is a person who uses resources to start a business. She also did a lot of games with us. It was really fun. My favorite game was when we played a business activity about entrepreneurs. We had to go around the room where there was four different signs. When she said we were right we all said, “Yes.” I really liked J.A. It is so sad that we can’t do it again!  ~Norah


This year we had a program called Junior Achievement and we played lots of games. One of my favorite games were we had to run a hotdog stand and we had to buy hotdogs and buns. My second favorite was when we had to make a computer and all of the parts came from all over from the world. My third favorite was Lemons - R - Us and it was a cootie catcher and it was a problem solving in case if there was no lemons to make lemonade. The JA volunteer was Mrs. Punches and she was the one who gave us the games. I had lots of fun with JA and Mrs. Punches. ~Michael


 Junior Achievement is a activity we did this year. We did lots of games and my favorite was the lemonade stand-(Lemon-R-Us). We made cootie catchers we took a piece of paper that Mrs. Punches gave us. It had if we lost money or got money. It was a little hard to fold but in the end it was cool. I played with Drew he got money and I lost money the whole time so he won. JA was fun Mrs. Punches was very nice. I can't wait for her to come back!!!  ~Kylie


 This year we did a program of Junior Achievement. My favorite game that we played is running a hot dog stand. The hot dog stand game was a paper game board and you played with four people. Everyone gets a game piece and a paper to keep their track of their score. This is how you play. There is a dice then after you roll the dice you get your game piece and put it on the number you got on the first line. Then everyone else rolls the dice and puts their game piece on the line. Then you do the same thing on every other line. I had so much fun at JA and I hope I can do it again.  ~Aubrey

 

  

This year our class participated in a program called Junior Achievement. We had many games and many fun activities too. In this class we played a game called Lemons-R-Us. This game is where you you make a cootie catcher. When the cootie catcher is finished you open and close it 10 times. There are many different sentences that you will read some are bad and some are good. Another of my favorite is making a paper computer. The parts of the computer came from all over the world from different countries. My third favorite game was the hot dog stand. The hot dog stand is where you have this big poster board with some dice,chips, and paper. I think Junior Achievement is great for people that like to have fun. ~Ashlyn

There was four different kinds of businesses like food stand, writer, engine, and sports. It was so fun I can't wait till next year.  ~Connor T. 


Every Tuesday, Mrs. Punches (JA volunteer) showed us how Junior Achievement worked.  One of the best and the most fun things we did was building a computer. We pretended to travel to different countries to find all the parts to build a computer. For example, Mexico made the hard drive and the screen came from South Korea. That was my favorite JA experience.  ~Quincy

 

This year we did a program called Junior Achievement. We did lots of games and we were pretending to be entrepreneurs. We played a game called business activity we had to go to one of the four corners before five seconds was up and that was my favorite. Then we talked about profits and losses when people are running businesses. Then we were doing a business to see what it was like. Then we switched to talking about capital, natural, and human resources. A capital resource are desks, chairs and way more. A human resource is people use nature to build things. Last but not least natural resource are things in nature. I had lots of fun.   ~Connor L.

This year we did a program called Junior Achievement. It was a lot of fun. We played a lot of different games. I will tell you my favorite game. This is called Supply Chain Assembly. This game is where we had to get parts for a computer from all around the world. We had to get a Monitor from Canada. Software, memory, fan, and video card from China and a power cord from Ireland. Those are some of the parts we needed from around the world. When we are finished making are computer. You can go home happily with your computer. So that is my favorite game we played in JA.  ~Sarah

     This year we did a program called Junior Achievement. We did a lot of fun games but I’m only going to tell you one. This one is my favorite. It’s called business activity where you take a sports,entertainment, and cooking sign. Mrs. Punches calls an entrepreneur's name. You try to figure out what he made. If you got it right you say yes. I’m glad Mrs. Punches joined JA and got to go to our class.    ~Jesse

 

This year we did a program called Junior Achievement. We played lots of games. My favorite one is running a hotdog stand. Each group got a game board and four different color chips. Each person rolls the dice once and whoever rolled the lowest number goes first. You start at the green then go to the blue the red and so forth. You write all your expenses down then you write down your revenue. You subtract your expenses from your revenue. Whoever has the most money left at the end of the game wins. Junior Achievement was so much fun!  ~Taryn
