My Students

My students are unique and special children who require a lot of extra time to learn. They have varying disabilities/needs that make learning in a smaller setting necessary.

We are a Functional Life Skills Program and strive to provide our students with the skills necessary to allow them as much independence as possible in their lives after high school.

Some of my students are non-verbal or have emotional challenges. We work on functional life skills on a daily basis to prepare for employment after high school. We currently operate a class "Coffee Cart." Students practice social skills, customer service and money skills as "greeters, muffin guys, servers and cashiers." Our customers consist of staff in our building

We would like to create a class store where our students can continue to practice their social skills and interaction with their peers! We are all very excited about creating our own portable class store!

My Project

Our students will be learning functional life skills with their new Class Store! The rolling cart and supplies will give my students a jump start for their store! Our hope is to resupply the cart with what they make in sales! Students can then learn to budget to purchase other items!

Students will be given the opportunity to practice social skills with their peers/customers, count money and make correct change and gain confidence!

As a functional life skills classroom, by students have limited interaction with their same-age peers. This class store will give them the opportunity to carry on conversations with peers and foster peer relationships. In addition, students will be able to practice money skills that they have learned in the classroom!
