Cooking Is An Important Daily Living Skill

My students need the Convection Freestanding Electric Range in order to be able to learn proper safety while cooking and how to use an oven/range with guidance.

My Students

My classroom is a Secondary Life Skills classroom, which is made up of 13 amazing students that have been diagnosed as having an intellectual disability. We spend the majority of the day in our classroom working on everyday living skills along with vocational skills that will help prepare the students for future work opportunities and life as we know it.

Every student is unique in their own special way and their determination to learn daily tasks is remarkable.

The pride they take in their accomplishments is just as rewarding to myself as it is for them. Their smiles bring joy not only to me but also our entire community.

My Project

Each day we work on daily living skills such as kitchen and cooking safety, hygiene, cleaning, laundry and shopping. Having our own oven will complete our kitchen, which will mean that we do not need to go down the hall and interrupt the Consumer Family Science class to pre-heat the oven, check on our food and retrieve our finished product. We are only able to use the range when their isn't a class being instructed in the room and this isn't very often.

This would give us the opportunity to host our students families for holiday luncheons, celebrate birthdays with students favorite meals and become more independent with our cooking skills.
