Pre-school time has come for the FACS classes. It was fun to see the students go around to the various stations. There was a reading station...
A science station...
A puzzle (to practice small motor skills) station...

A snack station...

And a few other stations. I think the students had a good time "being a kid" again. :-)

Today in Teen Living, babies were born! The babies are bags filled with rock salt- rock salt is easier to clean up if baby gets abused than flour is. The babies weigh anywhere from 5 1/2 lbs to 12 lbs. The student in the pic below just learned she was having twins! Ya for her!
Here she is with "Dr. Bench" and her special, new, little ones.Once all the babies were delivered, students had the rest of the hour to dress their babies. It was fun to see some of the items students brought to dress their children in. Good luck guys! At least rock salt doesn't cry. :-)

Duffle Bags

The first duffel bag has been completed- they aren't due until Tuesday, but this student finished early. And it looked great! As I walk around and look at the progress of the other students, I am impressed. Great job students!

Fashion Strip Mall

In Fashion, the students made a little strip mall to help learn about the different store types. They all turned out soooo cool! I would shop there!

Pancakes and Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

My FACS classes had their last lab today. They made pancakes with homemade syrup. Here are some of the class pics. Check out the perfect circle!!
In Foods, we made chicken fettuccine alfredo. The sauce is sooooo good and my room smelled nice and garlic-y. Yum!

Self Defense

Today in Teen Living we had a guest speaker to help teach some basic self defense techniques. I think most students might have walked away with a few bruises, but most learned valuable skills for defending themselves if they are ever in need of defense.
