Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday,, March 30, 2011

We played outside today. It is still a little cold in the mornings, but it is good for the children to get outside and run around. Please send in coats, gloves, hats, etc. as needed.

Willow Room: MWF class

We did Hickory Dickory Dock nursery rhyme today. and we asked the children "What do we need a clock for?

We read a cute story today called "The great nursery rhyme disaster", it is a story that ties in several of the nursery rhymes all together.

We glued numbers on a clock shape and a mouse running up our clock.

We had a new magnetic gears toy at the easel today.

We sang Marching around the alphabet and put your hands up in the air.

We made a chart of words that begin with the letter N. We have all the word charts posted in the hall.

Maple Room:

We are having fun with our grocery store and food activities. Today we read "Pancakes, Pancakes" by Eric Carle and we made pancakes to eat in our room for snack today. All the children enjoyed them.

We had round paper with tan paint and glue, circles for blue berries and chocolate chips and spatula paint brushes.

We sang "Down around the corner at the pancake shop", Hot Pancake with a spatula, shake my sillies out using shakers.

We did some letter "U" activities and a number recognition game, find the shopping cart.

Oak Room:

We read "Rainbow fish and friends a fish story" today.

We worked in our journals today, drawing pictures for and writing the letter X and Y.

We are talking about under the sea animals. We have some new magnetic toys in the room, it was fun to explore how the magnet could pull objects in a tray through the bottom of the tray.

We had shells out to look at with magnifying glasses and we also had shells in our estimating jar today. The children are getting better at estimating how many are in the jar, it used to be they would say "a million" when guessing, now many are close to the actual number in the jar.

Our dramatic corner is still evolving into a beach, with new items added daily.
