This summer I volunteered at a school for special needs kids. It was the best thing I ever did. I had so much fun helping and watching them learn about the digestive system, bones, nutrition, and the origins of the fourth of July.
Also during the ESY (extended school year) they have a store for the students where they can purchase items from pencils to computer games. The store is called the Sunshine Store.
Now I'm going to tell you about some of the kids in the class.
Traci: She LOVES Justin Bieber with a fiery passion. She is also a perfectionist.
Vivian:She loves all the Disney characters and flowers.You will always see Vivian with pink on also. Besides that she is a great friend and doesn't like being lied to (just like everyone else!)
Sammie: The skinniest guy you would ever meet but once you get him started on food, he will talk your ear off. Probably when he gets to college he will probably be a chef.
Brian S.: He is very curious and can spell almost anything. He loves reading and writing and exploring new things.
Brian V.: He loves to draw and color. His favorite colors are light blue and light green. He loves to be the cashier at the Sunshine Store because it involoves money and counting.
Robert: He is super tall and looks like he could be mean but he is actually the nicest and funniest guy you could ever meet besides the height difference.
Vani: She is also a perfectionist and loves to get work done.
Andrew: He is the comedian of the class. He can make you laugh when you are down.
Zahmeen: Like Brian V. Zahmeen also loves to color and explore new things. He has amazing handwriting and loves writing.
The ESY program ended Monday 8/8/11. The days lasted from 8:30 to 12:00 Monday to Friday. I can't wait to go back next year and see all the kids I met this year again.
