Bring Home Economics Back!

Help me give my students the opportunity to experience a fun, practical home economics class that focuses on cooking and sewing! We need a toaster oven, yarn, and an electric griddle.

Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

Who misses home economics? My students have been given an Extended Learning Opportunity (ELO) for cooking and sewing at our school located in Anaheim, CA. They are 4th and 6th grade students including mild/moderate Special Day Class. They are eager to practice their math and sequencing skills as they navigate their way through simple recipes. My students show their commitment by waking up early to start class at 7:00 a.m.! They come in eagerly to enjoy new foods and make fun projects like sock puppets. From learning to sew on a button to building a cold-cut sub this program helps my students build independence and learn practical life skills. Please donate today!

My Project

My Extended Learning Opportunity will give 4th and 6th grade students a chance to build independence of their cooking and sewing skills. Cooking lessons give students the opportunity to prepare healthy meals while using important life skills such as math and reading comprehension.

Sewing projects will encourage student creativity and give them exposure to fun activities that does not require screen time.

These two important courses will promote teamwork and joy because who doesn't love to eat home cooked meals and make handmade crafts?

Students will make friendship bracelets, sew stuffed animals, learn how to measure both food and fabric and critique each others meals and crafts!
