I teach students in a rural community with cognitive and physical disabilities ranging from 14 to 22 years old. Students are at various levels socially, physically, behaviorally, and cognitively, but each student is eager to learn. They are learning life skills and skills needed to transition out of High School.
My students support each other and are always willing to lend a helping hand to someone in need.
They are excited to discover the world around them. By mastering functional life skills, they are growing to become more independent and productive members of society.
My classroom is in need of materials to learn vocational skills. A cash register would be very useful in teaching my students money skills. Money skills will prepare them for the workplace as well as independent living.
This small adventure will provide students with a lifetime of opportunities.
My students are learning pre-vocational skills to prepare them for life after high school. They will learn a variety of vocational skills to help them in the workplace. This will encourage independence.
The vocational task boxes will assist the students in the skills of sorting, packaging and filling orders. These workplace activities will provide the necessary learning opportunities that many people take for granted.
