Today we went to the job fair and asked people questions about jobs. They explained about what they do such as call on the phone, help people in trouble on the highway, answer the phone, navigate a submarine or sail a ship. They explained about respect and getting along and maintaining focus.
We went to Pawsitively Cats last week and got a cat tour. We also petted some cats. We learned about how to adopt pets and take care of them. We learned about volunteering.-Matthew
This week we went to the Garden Kitchen learned about different types of plants and how long it takes for them to grow. We also put soil and water in some pots and brought them to Workability. We tasted many kinds of leaves such as spearmint, lemon, and broccoli.-Matthew

A few Fridays ago we were picked up by Sun Tran and rode for practice. Then we took the Sun Link. Then we got into Mercado San Agustin where we had lunch at a restaurant and went for a walk. I really enjoyed it.

Professionalism is dressing properly, turning off your cell phone, and being on time. If someone is doing illegal, you call security. Professionalism is not gossiping, not talking on your cell phone, and not stealing. It also means doing more than what you are told to do.
I brush my teeth twice a day. I make my bed and take a shower. I shave, brush my hair, and eat my breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I clean my house, do my laundry, and wash my dishes. I exercise every day. I eat healthy foods and sometimes junk food. When I feel tense, I drink some water and have a snack.
We made coffee and sold coffee as a team. We made towers with marshmallows and spaghetti. We tied strings to a cup and we put one cup on top of the other. -Matthew
It was a fun game.- Eric
We learned how to work together.- Misty
