Today, we went to Lucky Strike which is a bowling alley and we bowled. It was awesome. We had our class, Emily's class, Nubia's class, Amanda's class, Bobby's class, Hannah, and Lisa. We saw Tristan and Carmen! Jocasey and AJ helped Tim put the bowling ball on the ball ramp to push it down. Nathan was dancing. We all got strikes and spares. The bowling balls were heavy. Nathan liked bowling. Jocasey had fun but his finger hurt later. Tim had fun; it had been a while since he bowled.
After I get done with workability, I'm going to do some work. I'm going to get a job. I want to work. I want a job for money. maybe I'll start working at Safeway or CVS. My jobs might be putting the foods away, putting the foods away, putting new paper towels in the bathroom, bringing back the carts, putting stuff in the bags, and helping people. Safeway is my top choice.
My favorite job was the autism society. I cleaned the legos, cleaned the windows, put the legos away, and cleaned the office. I really liked shredding. There was a woman named Barbara. She was nice. i got a shirt.
Today we learned how to write checks. You have to write out how many dollars and cents it is. You also have to write who it is for. It gives them money. You have to sign it. We practiced writing checks to Margo, Edith and Agnes and Vito and some others. You also have to write what the check is for in the memo line. The money gets pulled from your bank account.
You can't be late for a job interview. You should wear nice clothes, like a button up shirt and nice pants. Have good breath but don't chew gum. Make eye contact because it tells them you want to work there. You should be and act professional. You need to have questions prepared to ask the interviewer. Have a good attitude!
On Friday we went to job fair with Vanessa. AJ and his class came too. We took the Workability bus to get there. At the job fair we saw people who were trying to hire new employees. They had signs along with people sitting at the tables. Two of the businesses were Walmart and Geico. Of course there were a bunch more. We talked to the businesses and walked around. We were supposed to offer them our resumes. We wore nice clothes so could be professional. We practiced talking to the businesses together. we leaned about asking questions about their jobs. Nathan liked the job fair. Next time, we might try to decide which businesses to talk to beforehand so we have more time while we are there. jocasey dressed like a construction worker. He wore an orange vest and hard hat.
we had to build a tower out of noodles that had to stand all by itself. sometimes the noodles broke. Everyone participated very well, but we didn't communicate as much as we should have. we had two tries but our tower didn't stand either time. next time we need to talk more right from the beginning. maybe we could tie the spaghetti with the green string. If something doesn't work we can try it a different way. we should also have better time management.
Next we went on a treasure hunt. we did much better at that. It was easier. We communicated better than the marshmallow one right from the get go. we fond them all as a team.. It was awesome. we learned that to be a good team you have to have good communication, work together and use everyone's abilities,
Today, we had to work as a team. Nathan had a blindfold, Jocasey couldn't talk, and Tim had to navigate without anyone telling him where the obstacles were. As a team we had to walk around to the kitchen, the lobby, computer lab, and then bock to the classroom.
Nathan : we worked well. It was hard to be guided. It was hard to be blind. It was fun. Like working in a team.
Jocasey : i thought we worked hard. It was hard getting in the places. It was hard because I could not talk but I had to wait for the other people and help them. It was easy because we worked together.
Tim: I do think we worked together but for me the challenge was having Jocasey direct me and Nathan without talking, which I wasn't used to. But we were able to get through it together as a team.
If you are dressing for an interview you would want to dress professionally. that might mean a tie, a button up shirt, and dress pants. also you need to be clean for the interview. you can't smell because otherwise the person who is trying to employ you might not hire you as a potential candidate, depending on what job you want. You have to be on time, treat other people with respect, and can't have a negative attitude. It always has to be a positive attitude in the work place. It always has to be a positive, otherwise you could either get a written warning and if you do the same thing again you could get fired.
we went for direct we clean table chars kitchen we tested markers
