Activities for Wednesday

Willow Room MWF class

We read the story "The little rabbit who liked to say Moo." by Jonathan Allen

Our question of the day was "Who brought you to school today?", which we then use the information for a comparison graph. We also did some activities with the calendar and talked about the weather. We did a counting activity too.

For art today, we used sponges to paint using different colors, green, red, brown, and yellow. When they are dry, we will cut leaf shapes out of them and use them to decorate our room for fall.

We used dot painters at the easel to make fun pictures.

Our table activities today were the magnadoodle, magnetic color board, magnetic letter board, a shape peg board and puzzles.

We always have playdough.

For music today- we did "The freeze dance", "If you're happy and you know it" and "Tommy Thumb".

We went outside today.

Maple Room- MWF class

Our story today was "Quick as a Cricket" by Audrey Woods which is a great story about how we are different on different days. We may be quick as a cricket one day and slow as a snail on another. To follow this up, we put a mirror by the table and the children drew self portraits.

At the easels we had white paper with paint. We created a negative space in the paper, by cutting a hole in the center. This creates a challenge for the child- what will they do when they paint?

Circle time- calendar, months of the year, September song, days of the week, counting and patterning with our calendar and our weather graph.
We did eye color/hair color graphing (Physical awareness) and we worked on name recognition with the song- "Who took the cookie from the cookie jar?"

Music: "Freeze dance" with colorful ribbons, "Everybody has a face", and "Today is Monday".

We went outside today.

The Oak Room- Pre-k class

We read "The foot book" by Dr. Seuss and "If you are angry and you know it" by Cecil Kaiser

We worked on our journals today, the children wrote their names, and then traced the letter "B". They also drew a picture of something that starts with the letter "B"- like a bear or a boat.

We did a sorting activity with ocean animals, wild animals, and farm animals. we sang the "bubble gum" song, and "Little Bunny Foo Foo"

We did a graph on who has the letter "B" in their name.

We went outside today.
