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!
K-9 headed out for our 2nd community outing in 2 weeks! First stop, Sensory Depot! Sensory depot is run by SWSRA. It has a small sensory room with a bunch of cool sensory items our kids loved! We took turns using the sensory room, jumping on the trampoline, playing in the kinetic sand and making our own sensory bottles....so fun! We ended the trip with a stop at our favorite restaurant.... McDonald’s of course! What a way to start a nice long weekend! FYI, Sensory Depot is open to the public if you are ever looking for a fun activity!
K18 celebrated springtime with an egg hunt and dying eggs! The students had fun finding surprise treats inside the plastic eggs and choosing which color to dye their hard-boiled eggs!
Well, it’s a few months delayed, but K-9 was finally able to get to the Kidsworks Children’s Museum of Frankfort! We had rescheduled after winter weather prohibited our January trip and boy was it worth the wait! Everyone enjoyed the many fun activities they had to offer. From legos to fishing to dinosaurs, there was definitely something for everyone!
K22 got their creative juices flowing as they painted individual tiles at Rainbow Ceramics in New Lenox. Rainbows, fish, flowers, beaches and paw prints were only some of the paintings produced. We are anxiously awaiting our finished artwork once it is glazed and baked. Students returned to school for pizza and a movie. We are so impressed with our young artists!!!
