Uniquely Brew Coffee Cart Start Up!

My students need a Keurig and K-cups to start a coffee cart. This will help my students have hands on money experience and give them a chance to work with the school community.

My Students

My students are part of a life skills, special education program; their ages range between 10-14 years old. They work hard to learn social and money skills they will need for their future jobs.

Although their goals might be different, we work hard to help each student achieve their goals and potential.

My students will have hands on experience to help them meet each goal.

My students are in one classroom for the majority of the day. The coffee cart will help them to build positive relationships with the school community.

My Project

The Keruigs and K-cups will help build our coffee cart. Students will send out order forms every Thursday for teachers to buy coffee on Friday. Then on Friday we will use the Keruigs to make coffee for every teacher. The Keruigs help us to have a variety of coffee drinks and teach my students how to pay close attention to details when filling orders. They will use the money skills when totaling up teachers orders.

The coffee cart will help my students bring a positive climate to our school.

The biggest skill they will learn is social skills. They will have to communicate with teachers to make sure that they have the correct order and how much money the teacher has left on their account.
