After the Ice Storms

Welcome back to the blog!  The weather and a few glitches with the blog server have put me a little behind on our classroom blog.  Please forgive me!  Here are some updates from the last few weeks.  I hope you enjoy seeing the things we have been doing around the community.  We began our community-based instruction last week.  One group of students is working at the humane society, while the other is working at the thrift store.  We have been studying about home living and cooking for the last month. 

Here are some updates:

Here are our students making some buffalo chicken dip for our unit on cooking.   This activity taught our students measurement, cooking skills, and using a microwave.  Not to mention, it turned out DELICIOUSLY!

 We are so proud of our classrooms ROTC representatives.  Way to go, Joey and D'Shawn!

Here is a fun activity we did for following written directions.   The students all learned how to wrap gift bags.

 Community-based Instruction:  Mrs. Hollon going over the site rules with the students.
 Here are the students hard at work!

 Finally, we took a great field trip to the movie theater.  The students purchased their own tickets by telling the clerk the show time and movie.  They also purchased their own snacks.  What a fantastic job!

This week, we will be learning about personal safety.  We will also be incorporating Valentine's Day activities on Friday as well.  Looking forward to another great week!
