My Students

The students of my high school life skills class are real-world learners! They spend each day interacting in the language of independent living.

Students of life skill classes are fortunate in that they are practicing the soft-skills of a job while being immersed in learning independent life skills - preparing them for the big post-secondary world out there!

Differentiation is an important aspect of a life skills class as every student joins learning at his/her own entry point. Each project in our class is designed to include language, academics and transitional skills which they can use in their post-secondary lives.

My Project

Our active life-skills students are studying the negative effects of plastic bags and plastic bottles on the environment. Students are challenged to re-purpose plastic items such as milk and water gallons, and to develop their own designs on them.

We need fabric paints, stencils, brushes and tie-dye to create designs on reusable canvas bags which can be used at the supermarket, reducing the use of plastic shopping bags.

We also need paints for decorating plastic soda and water bottles to use as bird houses in the Spring, and to paint other plastic items to repurpose in a garden environment, such as decorative flower pots.
