My students need cookware, mixer and blender in order to be able to work on cooking life skills within the classroom. The life skills are important to their survival.
Because of my students' special needs and the way they are limited to their access within the school setting with their non-disabled peers, working on life skills such as cooking and cleaning give them a sense of being able to do what every other student in the school gets to do.
They are the most friendliest students you will ever meet.
They have big smiles and love being at school with every other teenager. They want to be able to fit in and be like everyone else. Being able to prepare meals and treats as part of their curriculum and sharing with teachers and administration gives them a sense of accomplishment. The teachers and other students in the school are so accepting of the students and all make them feel that they are part of the school setting. I have one young lady who went out for cheerleading and is part of the varsity cheerleading squad this year.
Because my students have limited academic abilities, I feel that it is important that they understand how to be able to function within the real world once they have graduated. Cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, etc., these are the skills that will mostly benefit my students. With the cookware, mixer and blender, we will prepare simple meals and they will learn how to use the various appliances around the kitchen. Last year we began using the stove and learning all the knobs and how to use packages to determine temperature and such.
I feel this project will help change and shape the lives of my students by showing them what they are capable of doing on their own.
They will be able to leave school with knowing that they have some independent living skills and not have to depend on everyone for everything.
