At AOFC we are bringing in the month of Love otherwise known as February, with lots of snuggles, hearts, Valentines and most importantly LOVE! We love all our families and sweet kids that enter our classrooms each day with love and kisses and end each day with love and kisses from mommies, daddy's, and teachers. Our educators take pride in teaching as well as loving on their kids, giving them positive affirmations and modeling kindness towards others. XOXO from our AOFC family!

In our Preschool 3 class this week they were learning about fairy tales and tall tales. Ms Isis, the PS 3 lead educator, divided the students at tables so they could try building their own versions of The Three Little Pigs houses using, sticks, straws and bricks(legos). Each table worked on building the sturdiest version of each house so when Ms Isis came by to "blow their house down" it was either going to stay up or fall down. The students at the table with sticks had a house made of not only sticks but tape as well, the house made of straw included both tape and some yarn and finally the brick table used legos to make sure their house wasn't going anywhere. The houses built by the students stayed up despite the effort of Ms Isis to blow each one down and everyone lived happily ever after!!

As I am sure you have noticed our weather day to day continually changes and sometimes it doesn't even reflect the same season! That is why it's important to make sure that each child is dressed appropriately for the changing weather conditions. Obviously, with it being winter and certain days being definitely colder than others, dressing in layers is very important so that the child stays warm but does not over heat. Wearing breathable layers under winter gear is important as it keeps skin covered but each layer can be removed should the conditions change. Covering exposed skin to the elements with gloves and hats as well as a coat will make winter outside time much more enjoyable for the child. On days where the weather fluctuates, long sleeves and even a light jacket are fine for outdoor play. No matter the changing weather, our AOFC kids love to be outdoors and knowing what to wear allows them the opportunity to have fun while being able to adapt to the fluctuating temperatures.

We have been bringing in our new year with Snow decor, Snow flakes, Snowball fights, Snowmen and anything else Snow related. Our Enrichment room has been turned into a winter wonderland and in every classroom you will see some sort of snow related decor. Winter can be blah with the cold and unpredictable weather but at AOFC we have turned our winter blues into an amazing winter wonderland! It would be exciting to eventually have some of the real stuff but until then we will enjoy our very own AOFC wonderland and all the snow activities!
