Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, April 28, 2011
We read "No roses for Harry" by Gene Zion
We made flower pictures. We used a cardboard tube with slits cut in it dipped in paint, so it looks like flower petals. We added other things to embellish the picture. The children dipped Q-tips in green paint to make grass, and we glued on mini muffin papers, and pom poms to be the center of the flowers.
We had rubber band design boards out, bead stringing, and bristle blocks.
We did a color rhyme- each child holds a flower and "Two little blackbirds"
We played a small group game - rhyming words.
Willow Room: T/TH class
We read "Let's paint a rainbow" by Eric Carle
We used watercolors on doilies, we will make something special out of them.
We had chalk and stencils at the easel.
We are practicing our songs for Mother's Day at music.
Four of our butterflies just opened! We were all very excited. We are still waiting for our moth and the rest of our butterflies to open up. We put flowers and sugar water in with the butterflies for some food.
