The students had another great week! We successfully opened coffee shop and it is running smoothly!
This week students begin their life skills unit on planning for independent living. With the money they earn working coffee shop, each student will keep a check register and make independent living choices
We will continue our math unit on equations with a focus on determining operations in word problems. Students will also complete Brigance Assessments.
During ELA instruction, we will continue working on writing conventions, parts of speech and speaking and listening skills (specifically setting rules for discussions and learning to question and respond to questions to propel an “on topic” conversation). Students will begin using sources to define words and also complete Brigance Assessments.
During Science, we will complete our review of the scientific method, go over lab safety and begin to discuss the upcoming Eclipse.
During Social Studies, we will further discuss communities and how they may be formed by human activities, place and customs.
