Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday, April 20, 2011

We played in the gym today, it was too cold and wet outside to play in the playground.

Willow Room: MWF class

We read "Planting a rainbow"

We looked at objects that begin with the letter "S".

We painted with dish scrubbers in bright rainbow like colors.

We had dry erase markers and stencils at the easels.

We practiced singing our Mother's Day songs so we will sing so great for the moms.

Maple Room-

we celebrated EARTH DAY today! and we read a book called "Earth Day" by Mercer Mayer

We were working on part of our Mother's Day surprise for moms, so we can't tell you what it was or it won't be a surprise.

We had paint and brushes at the easels and butterfly stampers.

We sang "The April song, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle by Jack Johnson/w shakers, and we practiced our Mother's Day songs.

We played game using a recycling song about throwing the can in the recycle bin.

We talked about the letter X today and we did a letter sorting activity with words that begin with the letters g-l. The children looked at the picture, figured out what letter it began with and added it to that category. The children are not just learning ot recognize the letters, but the sound the letter makes.

Our Luna Moth opened today.

Oak Room:

We read "A fish out of water" by Helen Palmer and Rhyming Dust Bunnies" by Jan Thomas

We did a watercolor and salt process for art. We will use the project to make something special for a present. I wonder who we could be making a present for?

We had a variety of magnetic items in the room for some exploration.
We had "career" Mr. Potato head pieces.
We had bead stringing activities

We practiced our songs for Mother's Day.

We had the estimating jar out today, "How many bears are in the jar?"

During our group time, we each did a matching rhyme using pictures. We had to find the

we have also had out in the room the addition game the children learned in small groups the other day. They put the number of disks in each box, add them up and check to see if their answer is right. It is a fun, hands on way to learn the concept of addition.
