Two new weekly programs...Get PUMPED!

Hey, guys! Starting this November (that's next week!!), CMOM will be adding TWO new programs to our weekly calendar! I'm pretty proud of them, and hopefully you'll find them just as exciting...

Around the World Wednesdays
“I am not born for one corner. The whole world is my native land.” –Seneca
“The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible.” –Albert Einstein
Kids will be introduced to various countries from around the world. They will learn about the language, customs, dress, food, and other important facts about other countries to help them appreciate both similarities and differences between their own and other cultures. With each lesson, our little global citizens will get to participate in hands-on activities that incorporate what they've learned about the world around them.
November: North America
4: Canada
11: United States
18: Mexico
December: Central America
2: Puerto Rico
9: Jamaica
16: Guatemala
23: Cuba
30: Panama

Fabulous Fine Arts Fridays
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” –Pablo Picasso
“The artist's world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep.” –Paul Strand
Each week, children will learn about a specific art movement or visual artist and their special techniques that made them famous. Our own little masters will also use what they've learned to inspire their own beatiful work of art to take home.
November: Early Renaissance
6: Giotto
13: Ghiberti
20: Masaccio
27: Brunelleschi
December: High Renaissance
4: da Vinci
