    We could use Storyjumper to make a book of what we did.
    The concept of a ‘fantasy supermarket or restaurant was introduced and discussed in smaller groups.
    The groups came up with 5 ideas to show profit, budget and salary. They were:
    A restaurant
    A garden nursery
    A supermarket
    The Royal Adelaide Show
    A bank
    These were voted on and The Royal Adelaide Show won.
    The class suggested areas that needed to be considered to put on a Royal Show.
    Showbags
    Security and Parking officials
    Overall organisers
    Ticket sellers
    Advertising
    Rides
    Food
    The students chose a group they wished to belong to and then started to write down what they needed to do and what they needed to find out. Keeping in mind the words – budget, salary and profit.

    What do you think the word profit means?
    It’s a type of money.
    Using the money you have as a profit to buy something.
    Profit is when you have a certain amount of money to spend.
    Profit is when you earn or make money. If Mrs Scott had a lolly bag for $5 and sold it for $3 she’d make no money. But if she sold it for $8, she’d make a $3 profit.
    Profit is if I bought a bag of stones for $10 and sold it for $12, I’d have $2 profit.
    Profit is when you get a job and earn money.
    Profit is when you gain money for doing chores or having a job. If you lose money then it’s not a profit, but if you gain money then it is a profit.
    To sum up a profit is having a certain amount of money in your bank account.
    Profit is what we did when we worked out if we had $9.97 then you would have to pay less than if you had $5.54, then you’d have to pay more (student is thinking of rounding up or down).
    Profit is where you lose or make money.
    Profit is when you have a job and you get a certain amount of money each year.
    I think a profit is when you sell something for more than you bought it.
    Is a profit like having an account?
    The words Budget, Salary and Profit are placed on the Smartboard by the Mrs Scott. How can you explain these words to someone?
    A budget is if you went to the show and your Mum gave you $20 and that’s what you have to spend. Mrs Scott did this when she told us to choose show bags for $20 or under.
    A budget is when you have a limited amount of money to spend.
    Budget means that you have a certain amount of money.
    A budget is like the class budget where we only have a certain amount of money for everything in our classroom.
    In Monopoly it says collect $200 salary when you pass go.
    Salary is another word for money.
    Budget is an amount that you have, not a limited amount.
    Budget is when you have a certain amount of money to spend.
    If you are saving up for something and you see something else you would also like, you can’t have them both. That’s a budget.
    Salary is when you have a job and every fortnight you get paid a certain amount of money.
    The three words were then given accurate descriptions by Mrs Scott.
    How can we explain or show these three words – budget, profit and salary- to other people in an interesting and exciting way?
    We could do a play about a restaurant or a shop.
    We should do a play at assembly so that we can show how that stuff works.
    We should make a stall. Like lollies stall and explain by video how much the lollies cost and how much we get. Then using the money from the lollies stall we could do a budget.
    We could do drawings to sell. Someone draws it, colours it in amd then someone sells it.
    Stalls on sports Day, we could split into groups and sell bandanas and flags and things.
    We could do this and have a competition to see who makes the most money.
    How do these ideas show the meaning of salary?
    Can you think of something that would also explain salary?
    A supermarket
    For salary we could do Addi’s idea and there would be a team leader and the money could be split between the leader and the team.
    Split into groups and the group could decide what they do. We could raise money to increase our class budget.
    We could have a pretend plant nursery because we are growing plants in class.
    We could use Storyjumper to make a book of what we did.
