WoodRidge Transition Center
Many exciting things have taken place in our class in January! We began the New Year in Literature reading the book, “Hunger Games”, by Suzanne Collins. The student’s working in groups, developed and completed projects that included making food recipes, drawing characters and creating what the imaginary capitol looked like, all linking back to the story. We culminated the book by watching the movie and snacking on one of our forest recipes.
We have been going shopping on Tuesday’s at the CVS in Woodridge. We are learning how to locate items, find the items prices and create imaginary budgets. The students are given a scavenger hunt worksheet that chooses five items. Then they must practice locating, finding the price and determining the more expensive items.
We were lucky enough in January to travel to the Palisades Mall for a shopping spree and lunch. We challenged Mrs. Ann Walsh’s class to a bowling tournament and went to the Lodi Bowling alley. All in all a very fun month for our class!
