Activities for Friday, January 15, 2010

Willow Room, MWF class

We read "Snowy's special secret" by Guido Van Genechten

We had two questions today "What are some things that are hot?" and "What are some things that are cold?" We made a list comparing. We are also talking about textures.

We painted pine cones with white glitter paint, (pine cones are rough textured, paint is wet) We had dab a dot painters at the easels.

We had out some alphabet beads for stringing and learning the alphabet. We had a sorting game with circles, squares, and triangles. We also had out a shape button sorting game. WE have packing peanuts in our sensory table.

We sang "Late last night and cool bear hunt.

Maple Room- MWF class

We read "Tacky the penguin" by Helen Lester

For art we did a cutting project to help the children practice cutting. They cut out squares and then used dab a dot painters to paint them. We will turn their painting into a cute penguin to decorate our hallways.
We had hat shapes and stampers at the easel.

We sang the January song, and we did the bear hunt with instruments. They children really enjoyed using the instruments.

We also practiced writing some letters on the dry erase boards.

Oak Room:

We read "One wintry night" by Claire Freedman and Simon Mendez

We did one of our favorite projects today. The children cut out three circles and glue them onto dark blue paper to look like a snowman. Once they have done that, they use white paint to dab dots of paint onto the blue paper to look like snow. They also use markers to make a face on the snowman. It is great to see their creativity in making their snowman and the cutting practice with the scissors is wonderful for fine motor skills.

We had out some of the rhyming word houses we used with thechildren in our small groups the other day; they could use them to play the rhyming game alone or with a friend.

We did some snowman rhymes and songs at music time and we did shake your sillies out.

We have rice in our sensory table.
