 AoMF is welcoming Fall inside. We have been busy making Fall decor for the halls and classrooms. Fall represents a time for transformations both personal and environmental. It's a season drenched in tradition, Fall is the perfect time to reflect and embrace change. We leave the summer heat behind and the blooming flowers are changed with crisp leaves.

This week at AoMF we had open house! There were displays discussing our Frogstreet Curriculum and Conscious Discipline. In the Frogstreet curriculum, the topics discussed are language development, social & emotional development, cognitive development, and physical development. This curriculum aims to have the teachers excel and the students to succeed.

Conscious discipline is a technique that used to teach social-emotional learning, discipline, and self-regulation so they spend less time policing behavior and more time teaching vital life skills.

This week at AoMF we are saying see you later to our long term PreK teacher Ms. Demesha. She has a Master's in Special Education and has accepted a  position working with special needs children. Although we are all so sad to see her go we know the world is in need of her sweet soul. We are very proud to have been on this journey with Demesha and we wish her well on to her next chapter in life. "A truly amazing TEACHER is hard to find,difficult to part with, and impossible to forget."

 Last week at AoMF we enjoyed Bike Day! The kids really enjoyed showing off their bikes to their friends. We plan to continue bike day this month, because cycling will help a child develop their leg muscles, strengthen their stamina, and improve their cardiovascular development. It will also increase their coordination and balance. Here are a few pictures of our friends enjoying Bike Day!

 This week at AoMF we wanted to feature our Infant 1 class! Social and emotional development is so important at this age. The first thing your baby will learn is to connect the feel of your touch, the sound of your voice, and the sight of your face with getting his or her needs for comfort. Even at this young age infants are ready to learn about the world around them. Check out the smiles of infant 1!

This week at AoMF we are talking about OUT OF THIS WORLD!! That's right it is all about space.  In our lesson we discussed the importance of looking after our planet. Teaching about space helps children to realize how fragile our own planet is. The lesson  provided them with the importance of looking after planet earth. As a hands on lesson they worked on worksheets coloring the different planets to help recognize each planet and they also made moon sand!

It is said artistic activities foster intellectual development and some of their benefits are: stimulates both sides of the brain. Increases the capacity of memory, attention and concentration. Helps develop reading skills and children do better in math and science. Introduces children to new vocabulary and concepts.
