We had our first ever National Chocolate Cake Day mingle and it was a sweet success with families enjoying a delicious slice of chocolate cake with some cold milk to wash it down! Seeing everyone take few minutes enjoying time together along with a yummy slice of cake is the why we love special gatherings and what makes AOFC the place to be. Hooray for Chocolate Cake!!

This week the Preschool 1 classroom has been hard at work trying to master several skills that involve hand eye coordination as well as problem solving at their learning tables each day. Learning to use scissors is an area where many children struggle as it reqires dexterity to hold the paper to be cut and then the hand eye coordination to actually use the scissors correctly . One of the tables was scissor skill practice while the other one had play dough which helped them stregthen their hands as well as allowing them to use special scissors to cut the play dough. Finally, using bean bags to help with coordination was a fun way to learn in between each table rotation. We can't wait to see these newly aquired skills put to use both in the classroom and at home.

We had a very special visit from Santa who took time out from his busy schedule at the North Pole to come and spend time with all our AOFC families. Santa was in for a treat as there was cookie decorating, Gingerbread cookies to eat and lots of milk to drink not just for Santa but for all the families who came to enjoy and celebrate the Christmas season. Before he left Santa wished us a good night and Merry Christmas as there was a lot of work to still be done before Christmas morning! What a special time with our families and definitely a visit we look forward to every year! We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We had our first ever Family Gingerbread house contest and there were some awesome creations that made their way to the judging table! There were small chocolate houses, a Gingerbread train , a house with snowmen just to name a few but all were different and each one special which made the judging by our teachers incredibly difficult. To go along with the Gingerbread theme our PS 1 class did undercover Gingerbread men by disgusing them in lots of awesome ways like a flamingo, a gumball machine, Elsa, a kitty and even a dinosaur! We love celebrating the holidays with our AOFC families and look forward to welcoming in a creative a fun New Year!
