CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - Inside of classroom 1404 you will find a group of eager Cabot High School students taking on real world tasks.
"Peanut butter, whole wheat flour, baking powder, milk," Christian Morris listed the ingredients it takes to make the doggie treats, known as "K-9 Crackers." It did not take the class filled with students with special needs long to learn exactly what to do. A little mixing here, some beating there and cutting out the treats. It is one way these students said first-year teacher Shelley Moore is making a difference.
Morris said, "She's nice. She also gives us work to do." Moore came up with the project to teach her students life skills. She continues, "Some of our students will eventually have jobs in the community and so teaching them how to handle money, how to take orders, how to fill orders, how to keep a job."
