November 2014

During November, we kept busy with visits from the Wilmette fire department, the Wilmette police department, and the Marie Murphy 8th grade Spanish students. We learned about dinosaurs, made our own scarecrows and celebrated Veteran’s Day by learning a flag song! To end the month, all of our families joined us for a special feast in the classroom and we ate many yummy Thanksgiving foods! Take a look at some pictures from November in the A.C.P.

September 2014

During our first month of school we have had so much fun! We learned all about our new classroom, our centers, using toy tickets and the class listening rules. We had a visit from the school nurse who taught us how to catch our coughs and sneezes in our arm and how to wash our hands along to the Happy Birthday song! We also worked hard making self portraits and meeting many new friends! Please enjoy some pictures from September in the A.C.P.
