The Blue Apron is a student-run full-service restaurant, open Tuesday & Wednesday from 11:00 – 1:00 pm.
In the French cuisine, the color of an apron worn by the staff denotes the level of mastery. The Blue Apron is known for it's “student in training” approach. Our students are receiving both high school and college credit while enrolled in the program.
Ms. Tiede's Child Development students have had fun creating finger puppet shows & recording them on their iPads recently. These students are not only learning the importance of allowing children to practice gross & fine motor control skills with the use of puppets but that children can also learn appropriate behaviors by watching the puppet's example while encouraging creativity as well. The experiences & skill sets Ms. Tiede's students are learning in this class will better equip them for future careers in early childhood education and even as parents someday. Great job everyone!
Students in Ms. Tiede's Child Development classes are utilizing the RealCare Baby Infant Simulators this week. These simulators offer real-life experiences that address prenatal education, childcare skills, infant safety, and more. Yesterday, the students were practicing responding to the different coo's & cries that the simulators make.
Ms. Dian's Child Development students had the opportunity to wear the Empathy Belly this morning during 1st Period. "The Empathy Belly" Pregnancy Simulator allows the students to feel what it's like to be pregnant and has proven to be a highly effective, unique, and powerful teaching tool. Students who wore the belly had to try to maneuver around with the extra 30 pounds attached to them. They practiced going up and down the stairs, tying shoes, picking things up off the floor, and attempting to become comfortable with pillows while laying down. The students then did several activities focusing on the care of an infant by using QR codes to watch videos on their iPads.
