Kitchen Skills 101
My students need kitchen equipment for learning hands-on, independent living skills.
Try teaching life skills to students with only a bowl, spoon and a toaster oven I purchased at a garage sale. REAL equipment would be wonderful!
I teach Deaf Special Needs students in a public high school.
My students thrive on real life experiences, so we take a field trip once a week. We have gone to markets and farms to learn about the foods we eat. We went to the ice cream factory to see the manufacturing process of our favorite frozen treat. They taste Ethnic foods to broaden their palate.
It would greatly supplement these experiences to have kitchen equipment for my students, to incorporate the lessons they learn into practical life skills. This would be a huge step toward their independence.
We love to cook! Finding recipes, measuring and mixing are wonderful ways to learn everyday educational and occupational skills. We want to host mini parties to share our culinary masterpieces and practice our social skills. The interest is high.....and delicious!
With this basic kitchen equipment, my students will gain knowledge and experiences they need to prepare their own food and help in a kitchen with the goal of gaining independence.
Our school principal is working with us to transform an under used classroom into a teaching kitchen These supplies will greatly help in making that goal attainable.
