Keeping it Real

Offering products in the classroom that are in color and make use of real images is something I like to offer our students. Beside the fact that the students love any task that involves food, presenting real images gives them a realistic experience when learning life skills and vocational skills.

Many classrooms are unable to offer field trips to show students how to shop for groceries or eating out and learning how to order and pay for purchases, so I enjoy making products to bring these types of real world experiences into the classroom.

I work with students in a high school setting so many of them are learning how to do various jobs and basic skills to be more independent.  These skills can also be introduced with younger grades as well.

I just completed two new fun vocational food tasks that have turned into class favorites already! Who doesn't like food right?  Our students go to these choices before any others because they are drawn to the visuals and can relate with their own experiences while preforming the tasks. What is wonderful to see is the encouragement they feel when they complete the tasks with little or no help.

Here are 2 of my newest tasks that are popular in our classroom:
Build a Breakfast Fast Food Vocational Task Fast Food Employee

These new products can be purchased individually or in my newest real image bundle:

Morning Break Donuts, Chinese Take-Out, and Ice Cream Parlor are also sold individually or as part of other bundles available.
