Author’s Chair

This year we are part of the First Author program.  Each day we write about fun topics and on Friday’s we get to share a piece of writing with the class by sitting in our special Author’s chair.  As a class we designed and decorated this special chair.  Here are a few pictures.

New School Year, New Class

We have had a great start to the 2019-2020 school year.  We had our first day at the work site on Monday.  Every one did a great job learning our new work jobs.  We have started our Readtopia reading program as well as our First Author writing program.  We have spent time talking about things we “like” and things we do “not like.”  This is helping us to generate and collect a list of topics we can keep in our topic bank for writing activities.  I am so excited for this school year and to get to know the new students.

Pizza Party and New Track

Last Wednesday, June 12th we had a class Pizza Party!  We used the money we earned this year through our Slice of Life sales for the party.  It was a great time with yummy food.  We also enjoyed walking on the brand new track that was built at Center Line High School.  We are glad the weather is nice enough to enjoy walking outside.

CBI Recycle Trip

Last CBI we went to the Warren Recycle Center to return our recyclables.  We sorted the recycling we collected from the school and brought it to the recycle center.  We also went to Kroger to return the cans and bottles we collected while recycling.  We all worked together to get the job done.  It was a great trip.  Tomorrow we will have our last CBI trip until after July break because we do not have any bus trips in June. We are going to Dairy Queen for lunch.  We are all excited for a fun trip!

Swimming at Center Line

All of our students and some staff swam with Center Line High school peer lifeguards. We played games, catch and tag. It was great making friends with the general ed students and Ms. Phy-Daly the Lifeguard instructor.

Two days of fun and a lifetime of memories. We can’t wait to do it again next year.

Project ACES

Last Wednesday, May 1st we participated in Project ACES day.  This stands for “All Children Exercise Simultaneously.”   This is part of national physical fitness and sports month.  For Project ACES, our class made signs about exercise and good nutrition.  On ACES day, as a group we walked on the track inside the gym together.  We also enjoyed healthy snacks including fruit, yogurt, vegetables, popcorn, and water.  Here are some pictures of our class making the posters and on ACES day.
