This week we worked on problem solving so we decided to organize colored pencils we thought of why they were always getting unorganized and we decided to organize them by color and put a rubber band on them and then we put them back in the box and we kept 4 of each color for our class and that is what we did this week.-Alejandra
I was separating colors out and rubber banding them. I was organizing to solve the problem of the colored pencils always getting mixed up.- Darrien

I learned how to ask different kinds of questions at the job fair. -Darrien
Job searching questions is when we talk to people about working. We ask questions like "what is the dress code?", "what are the shift times?" and "do you hire people with disabilities?"
We did 2 different videos one was called, "I can say no" and the other was called, "It's good to be different". We made posters for the videos and we explained what each poster was about.
"I can say no" is about self-advocacy.
For the video, "It's good to be different" we show that being different is okay because it is unique and it makes the world different because if it was the same it would be boring.
And that is what our 2 videos are about self-advocacy and diversity. -Alejandra
We made some posters about different kinds of sayings about beliefs, diversity, culture, self-advocacy, saying "no" and speaking out for yourself. We showed the other classes our videos. We appreciate our videos. -Darrien
