Activities for Friday, January 29,2010

Willow room- MWF class

Our question today was "Do yo have the letter F in your name?

We read "My five senses" by Aliki and we made a chart of words that start with the letter F.

We had a group art project today, a big pieces of paper, and we used rollers with red and blue paint- so we made purple.

We had scented paint at the easel- it smells yummy.

We had an alphabet picture book out, some shape puzzles, and our magnadoodle.

We had a fine motor and matching activity out today- mittens and clothespins. they had to find the matching pair and then clip them onto the clothesline.

We used rhythm sticks today and used them while we sang along to a nursery rhyme cd.

Maple Room:

We read "The mitten" by Jan Brett today.

We cut a mitten shape out for a class book we are making. We painted with ice cubes.

We sang Dino Rhymes, did the chicken dance, and did head shoulders, knees and toes.

We practiced writing out letters on our white boards today.

We played a game with the parachute pretending it was a giant mitten and we were all the animals from the story getting inside to keep warm.

Oak Room;

We had our Pajama party today. The children came in pajama's and we had extra fun with sleepytime activities all day. When the children arrived, 2 of the teachers were "still sleeping" on the floor and the children were greeted by the director who told them they needed to be extra quiet since everyone was still asleep. The children were not sure what to do....they walked round a bit, then played with the toys quietly so as not to wake their teachers. It was so cute. After about 6 or 7 minutes of this, I told the we needed to wake up the teachers....

Then class got started, they read "Corduroy Bear while the children cuddled with their stuffed animals.

For art, they cut overalls to glue on a bear shape to look like corduroy bear. They drew on a face and glued on buttons.

For music we acted out "10 in the bed" and "5 little monkeys jumping on the bed".

We all sat on a big blanket and watched "Arthur's first sleepover".

We had a fun special day.
