Trinity Preschool Activities for Monday, March 28, 2011

Welcome back from spring break! We wish we still had warm weather so we could spend time outside, but today was a little cold so we played in the gym.

We are beginning to get some new equipment from the money raised in our Silent Auction fund raiser. We bought some new science materials, blocks, table concept games, and art materials. The children enjoyed playing with some new magnetic toys today.

Willow Room: MWF class

We are finishing up our nursery rhymes this week. We have a new nursery rhyme sequencing table activity. There are three pictures about the nursery rhyme and the children put them in the correct order. It is a good follow up to learning about the rhymes.

Today we did "Jack and Jill" and "Little Miss Muffet"

We asked the children "Do you have the letter "N" in your name?" as we are talking about the letter "N" this week.

Although in the rhyme, Jack's "crown" he broke is his head; we made him a new "crown" since he broke his beautiful head covering crown......we glued glitter and other sparkly things onto a crown for Jack.

We had fun spring like painting instruments at the easel and th children used glitter paint to make pictures.

We sang the Nursery rhyme songs, moving day, and tap your toe and follow me.

We talked about the days of the week and the weather at our second circle and we looked at objects that begin with the letter N.

Maple Room:

We are beginning our unit on grocery stores and healthy foods. We have our dramatic corner set up like a grocery store and the children pretend to shop and they pretend to be the grocers too.

We read "Don't forget the oatmeal" by B.G. Ford

The children created their own shopping lists and we had textured brushes at the easel.

We sang Clap your hands, and sticky bubble gum.

We did some letter "U" activities.

Oak Room:

We are beginning our unit on "Under the Sea", we will learn about the fish and other animals that live in the water, look at shells, and do other "water" activities.

Today we cut out fish shapes and painted them with watercolors. They will go on our bulletin board to make part of our under the sea scene.

We sang golf fish, gold, fish, what do you see?, Five little fish.

Our Dramatic corner is being transformed into a beach.
