Card creations with purpose
Posted Tuesday, December 4, 2012
At Loveland High School, the transitional learning class is designed to promote life skills and vocational training; this holiday season, the group of six students is busy learning a lesson in business. Along with help from peers, the students are producing holiday and greeting cards to sell.
“Making the cards helps to develop fine motor skills, vocational skills and teaches students about completing and staying on task to become more independent workers,” explained Molly Swaine, Loveland High School intervention specialist with transitional classroom learning. “The students love making the cards and are able to work on their money skills while selling the cards. We use the money for our Partners Club, field trips as well as classroom activities with our peer mentors.”
Interested in purchasing some of the student-made creations? The cost is $2 for a pack of four. You can place your order by contacting Molly Swaine at (513) 697-3765.
