Acton Expectations Treat others as you want to be treated!
My name is Mrs. Lillagore and this is my family. I am starting my 13th year at Acton Elementary and I LOVE it here!!! My husband, JJ is a firefighter. My oldest son, Benjamin is in 4th grade at AES in Mrs. Roe’s class and William is in Kindergarten with Mrs. Brackin. I love to read, work on computers, exercise, go to the beach, and hang out with my family and friends.
Let’s Talk About Art • You come to art once a week for 50 minutes. • Time is short, so we MUST stay on task. • K and 1 come in and sit in the story area each week to share our story and have our lesson. You will be dismissed by table to begin your project. • 2nd,3rd, 4th, and 5th go directly to your assigned seat so learning may begin. • Learning objectives for the week will be posted on the board. • After our story or introduction, we will have studio time to complete our projects. Some projects will be completed in the 50 minutes we are in class. Some will take several class periods. • Each child will keep a portfolio in art. This means you will not take home a project every week when you come to my room. However, at the end of the year, you will bring home a compilation of work that will show how much you’ve grown as an artist.

After getting our seating assignments and reviewing the rules and procedures of the art room, we either read I’m the Best Artist in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry or Bridget’s Beret by Tom Lichtenheld. Then, we got to draw a picture of our favorite thing we did this summer and take it home with us.
