K22 spent an afternoon exploring the Oak Forest Fire Department . Fire fighter Nick gave us a tour of the station and the emergency vehicles. We had a great time learning about an important community helper!
K22 wrapped up the PBIS fall celebration week by signing and then taking a pledge to follow the 3 B’s of CD. We decorated our pumpkin from the Community Outing with thumbprints and signatures to illustrate our commitment to being respectful, responsible and safe. Each student cut out their own paper pumpkin, then added a PBIS expectation and pledge. Students then were able to review PBIS expectations by playing PBIS Memory and PBIS Jeopardy. We had a great week of Celebrating PBIS!!
Our Fall Celebration was a huge success! The fall celebration is in honor of our student’s commitment to following the 3 B’s of CD...Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Safe! We started the celebration with a CD wide community outing to Konows pumpkin farm! A little rain didn’t stop the fun! Our favorite was definitely the corn pit!
In the classroom, we focused on reviewing and pledging our commitment to the 3 B’s of CD! We played games, decorated a classroom pumpkin and, finally, signed our “pledge” to PBIS! Check out these dedicated students!
The blustery and rainy day did not dampen K22's fun at Konow's pumpkin patch and corn maze! Our PBIS Fall Celebration included a bumpy tractor train ride and climbing the hay bale fort. We also enjoyed sinking into the corn pit and eating lunch at the indoor picnic area!!! We had a great day celebrating the 3 B's of CD: Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be Safe!!!!!!

May has been filled with many many Wonderful Adventures! CD Braun jumped right into May while visiting Luv2Play in Alsip. Braun Educational center also invited us to the Flying Fox Animal show and Tom Flynn's magical juggling experience. The entire CD program celebrated an amazing school year at Brookfield Zoo. CD Braun is still awaiting more adventures in May over the next few weeks. We can't wait for swimming with APE, Field day @ Braun, and Special People Day Carnival.
Some of the animals that K18 has been learning about in the classroom came to life during our visit to Brookfield Zoo! K18 especially loved seeing the monkeys, penguins, fish, and giraffes.
K22 participated in the CD Program outing to Brookfield Zoo. We saw a variety of interesting animals, including a playful sea lion, a mama gorilla carrying her baby and a leaf-licking giraffe. Even though the day was cloudy, students still enjoyed exploring the zoo's many members!
We’ve had quite an exciting week in K-9! A week filled with animals:) Ever heard of dog therapy?? Well, little did we know that dogs aren’t the only therapeutic animals! We had a visit from some very sweet, very friendly chickens! The students got to hold, pet and interact with these wonderful creatures! They were such a big hit! Then of course, we had our CD program community outing to Brookfield Zoo! A little rain and chill did not keep us from having an awesome trip! We saw monkeys, crocodiles, bears and tigers to name a few! Our favorite part.....the dolphin show! What amazing animals!!
The chickens left the coop to visit Coop CD classes. K22 students took turns petting "Harriett", "Bandit", "Winter", and "Violet". We were thrilled to hold the chickens in our lap and calmly stroke their soft feathers. What a wonderful experience!
