A Day in the Life of Classroom 3

i Aug 7th No Comments by

NSSA’s Education Program, The Martin C. Barell School, has four classrooms. Classroom 3 is the second oldest class, with seven students ranging in age from 16 to 17. They spend their days doing classroom work both individually and as a group, doing jobs in the community, and engaging in recreational activities, such as yoga, going in the pool, spending time on the computer, or relaxing in a beanbag chair in a quiet corner of the classroom. That said, every day is a little bit different…so let’s follow the students of Classroom 3 around for one day and see what their actual day is like.

This particular Wednesday started out drippy and steamy as the students arrived at school by bus.

They put their belongings away in their lockers then went to their classroom where they worked independently on tasks such as filing, counting, following written instructions, etc.

Early in the morning they headed to one of their job sites at Outback. They go well before opening time to clear off tables, wipe them down then re-set them with menu cards and folded napkins. They fly through their tasks but still do a really good job.

After finishing their work at Outback, everyone got back in the van to return to school. A few students went right back out to another job site with Classroom 4 and a couple headed to Elija Farm for a meditation class.

When everyone returned a little later, they all met in the gym for yoga with Miss Danielle. The practice involves following instructions, maintaining positions and breathing.

After lunch the students had leisure time, during which they can go on the computer or iPad or do puzzles or other favorite classroom pastimes.

Then it’s Smartboard time where students work on taking turns, calendar skills, phonics-based learning and more.

After their long day the students got to relax until it was time to get on their bus, either having a snack or using a computer or iPad.
