Last week we continued learning about appropriate restaurant behavior. We had a short week, so we focused on different jobs in a restaurant, how to tip, and why it is important to tip our servers. We had two very special guests for this topic-- Mr. Pugh and Mrs. Barr, David's mom and dad. They both work in the restaurant business, and they told our students a little bit about their jobs. The students had some GREAT questions for our guests and seemed very interested in a possible occupation in the restaurant business.
Earlier in the week, we also had some other VERY special guests who had a surprise for our class...
This week...This week we learned all about FRIENDSHIP. We learned about appropriate and inappropriate friendships and how to be a good friend. We will continue to emphasize the importance of these skills throughout the year. It is very important that our students understand that fostering healthy friendships will lead to a happier and safer environment.
On Wednesday, we spent the day touring our city and learning about the different community resources we have available to us.
We visited City Hall where we learned about what they do in the courtroom and toured the old jail. Officer Emmanuel led the tour, and we met several members of the dispatch team.
We ended the first half of the day with a trip to Fox's Pizza Den where we were able to MAKE OUR OWN PIZZA. The staff there was so helpful and friendly, and they loved meeting our students. They taught us about following safety and health regulations.

After enjoying our pizza, we headed over to Prattville Associated Grocer where we took a tour of the store, learned about occupations in the field, and then did some shopping!
Each student was given one ingredient to find. In all, we were able to purchase enough food to make 3 recipes!
Pratt Park here we come!
All in all, our field trip was an amazing experience. Our students got a lot of exposure to community resources and occupational opportunities!
We are still selling pickles and crushing cans to make a little money for the classroom... I will end with some pictures of our students working hard!
