  Life Skills/ Academics for Life

1st block: Support in Culinary Arts

2nd block: Planning

3rd block: Language Arts/Social Studies

4th block: Math/Science

Welcome to a brand new school year!  It hardly seems possible that summer is gone and we are gearing up for a great  2013-2014 school year. We have 8 students in our class this year, welcoming 2 new Freshmen from Auburn Middle School. I am looking forward to a fantastic school year!

The students in my class spend block 1 and block 2 in elective classes. After lunch we have our academic blocks.

In Language Arts we will study the novel "Little Women." This  is a classic story which takes place during the Civil War time period. We studied the Civil War years last school year and this is a nice follow-up to that study. As with all of our novels, after reading we will view the video to help make the book come alive.

Other academic studies will include Math, Science, Reading and Writing.

A special addition to our curriculum ths year is "Today we are celebrating____"

Every day I will share something fun, out of the box, or weird  about the day, such as Barbie's birthday, the birthday of the rotary phone and touch tone phone,

and, well, you will just have to stay tuned for all the special days....
