SUMMER SESSION

This summer, we worked on fun hands-on activities around the life/job skills topics of advocacy– sticking up for ourselves and others, feeling what others are feeling, and aiming to build relationships of trust with people. We even had guest speaker Denise Prehay, who identifies as a person who advocates for people who are oppressed, visit class to ask us questions and discuss her disability self-advocacy work. Finally, we plan to take some field trips—including one to the new science museum—this week! It has been wonderful working with you all this session and learning from all you have brought to class.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Life Skills: Grocery Shopping

Students practiced shopping for healthy foods and staying within a budget at Presidente Supermarket.  Before visiting the store, we checked what was on sale, planned meals that include the vitamins we’ve been learning about, and made a grocery list.  At the supermarket, we had a scavenger hunt to find all the foods on our list.

Beautiful

This splatter paint project is part of our unit on body positivity and positive self image.  Just like a paint splatter, we don’t have to be perfect in every situation in life but instead are enough and wonderful the way we are.
