Keeping Clean and Halloween

We had a big, fun week in the vocational training class this week.  We kicked off our study of personal hygiene.  On Monday,  a Mary Kay representative, Katie, came and demonstrated appropriate facial and skin care.  She also showed our students different products for different types of skin.

Everyone did such a great job, and we loved meeting Katie!

Not only did we learn about cleaning our skin, we also learned the importance of washing our clothing.  We watched a video on how long, what temperature, and frequency of washing certain items-- allow your student to try to do their own laundry at home!

We also discussed cleaning injuries.  We will be continuing this study this week.  We will be doing a hand washing activity as well as discuss washing our hair and wearing deodorant.  

We also celebrated Halloween this week, and had our FIRST Prattville Pals event (blame them for the TONS of candy!!).  We went trick-or-treating around PHS and the ACTC.  A big thank you to all of the PALS and teachers who participated to make the event a great success!

Our grand finale to trick-or-treating tour was the band room where the percussionists played for us!

The week ended big as well with our PHS black out pep rally!  We were all decked out with our glow sticks and definitely helped pump everyone up!

Please remember you can see our lesson plans for each week by clicking on the LESSONS link on the side.  This will also have our spelling/vocabulary each week (if we will have any).  Have a great week!
