This week our group rode the city bus to the Airport Meijer to do some grocery shopping. Students were asked to pick out an item or two from the freezer section that they would like to eat later on in the week during cooking class. Our group did an excellent job at Meijer. We worked on locating the correct aisles, locating products, finding prices, asking a store associate for assistance if necessary, determining how much money is needed to make the purchase (i.e., Next Dollar Up strategy), and finally making the purchase at the self-checkout. We will continue to work on these skills and will do so at various grocery stores in the area. We've also been working hard at our volunteer sites, and we made a trip to the downtown YMCA.
I hope you all have a great weekend and I'll see our group next week.
