Activities for Monday, February 1, 2010

Willow Room: MWF class

We read A day with a mail carrier by Jan Kottke and asked the children if they have ever been to a post office.

We transformed our dramatic corner into a post office now. The children will be mail carriers and sort mail too.

We do the weather, days of the week and some counting activities at our second circle too.

For art today we glued foam letters onto envelopes to decorate our post office themed bulletin board.

We had magnetic shapes at the easel.

We had letter puzzles out for the letters F,G,H.
We had a sorting game out, a number puzzle and some letter beads for stringing.

We sang I like my hat (and used paper hats for the song), we also sang the fish song

Maple Room:

We read "Double Trouble Groundhog day" by Bethany Roberts

We did shadow painting to be like the ground hog seeing his shadow. We used heart shapes and the children put the shape on the paper and painted around it so when we took it up, it looked like a shadow.

We had brushes at the easel.

We sang months of the year", "the February song", and "do you know these letter sounds?"

We are talking about the letter "L" this week.

Our dramatic corner is now a post office, with sorting activities, scales for weighing packages, cash registers, and many post office items. The children were very busy in our post office today.

Oak Room:

We read "DW's library card" by Marc Brown

We cut out heart shapes today and then painted them by putting them in a box and rolling marbles over them that had been dipped in paint. We will use them to decorate our bulletin board.

We are talking about the letter "R" this week.

We changed our dramatic corner into a library. The children each have their own "Trinity Library card" and they will sort books and check them out. They really enjoyed this today.

We sang "Hello, my name is Joe", Put your finger on, and "Where is thumbkin?"
