Last week, the B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students Community Based Instruction (CBI) field trip was a favorite of all, a trip to Chick- Fil- A. After having to wait patiently, as their bus arrived a ½ hour late to the school, students finally made it to one of their favorite fast-food restaurants!
Students each had to place their order and then used their debit cards to pay for their meals. Next, they waited at their tables for the meals to be delivered. The class had the entire restaurant to themselves! That was a real treat! As always, the students had a great time socializing with each other.
Once back at school, students used their receipts to determine subtotals, added tax and total amounts paid for lunch. The B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students practiced their Budgeting, Independence, Development, Growth, Empowerment and Social Skills.
Stay tuned for the next CBI, where the students will put on their creative hats at Board & Brush Creative Studio!
