Trinity Preschool Activities for Friday, January 7, 2011

We played in the gym again today. We stay inside during the cold weather. We are lucky to have many kinds of large motor play equipment and the space to use it. Children get exercise for at least 15 minutes a day. Even in this cold weather, try to get your children to do some exercises each day. The recommended amount is 60 minutes. You can always put on music an DANCE!

Willow Room- MWF class

The other day we read the story called "The Mitten" and today we read the follow up story to that one called "The Hat" also by Jan Brett

We are talking about alphabet letters each day. Today we asked the children about some words that start with the letter "A". We have an alphabet kit that has items in it that start with each letter, so the children can see the item as well as hear the letter sound.

For art we made an "A" picture. We used tempra paint and the letter A to make prints.

We had painting at the easel.

We used rhythm sticks at music today, we did the weather song, ABC letter sounds song, and sang some songs from one of our favorite CD's.

We added styrofoam pieces to our sensory table .

Maple Room:

We read "A little bit of winter" by Paul Stewart

We used cotton balls held by clothes pins with purple and blue paint on white paper.

We had ice cubes made out of water colors at the easels with snowflake shapes.

We sang I am a snowman, What color is the snowman and tap you toe and follow me. We also had a cotton ball snow ball fight! The children really enjoyed that, many squeals and screams of joy.

We measured our growing snowflake and it grew 1 inch since Wednesday. We made predictions about how many inches it will be on Monday.
We practiced writing the letters A-K.

Oak Room:

We read "Snowmen at night" and had Pastor Dan come in our room as a guest reader today.
We also read Sleep, Black Bear, Sleep. We are continuing to talk about winter, and hibernation.

We made snowman pictures. The children were given 3 circles, small, medium and large and they cut them out and glued them on a dark blue paper to look like a snowman. They then drew on a face and used white paint and Q-tips to make snowflakes in the back ground.

We had out the letter "N" puzzle. We also had out some ice chunks that had some hidden items in them. The children sprinkled with salt and water colors to dissolve away the ice and find hte hidden objects.

We sang "Tap your toe and follow me" and we did some snowman rhymes.
