Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday, May 11, 2011

We played outside again today in the playground.

Willow Room- MWF class:

We read "Baby Bird's First Nest" by Frank Asch
We asked the children if they ever saw a real bird's nest?

We made our own bird's nest using paper coffee filters, strawberry baskets, yarn, cotton, wood strips, and crinkly paper. We made a "mud" mixture using brown paint, glue and salt.

We did an alphabet rhyme (marching around the alphabet), and two little blackbirds today for music.

We cut the "hair" (grass) on our grass heads. Our luna moth is out, it is so pretty. We will let it go later this week.

Maple Room:

We did the story of the carrot seed, and we added a prop at the end where we pulled out a giant carrot. The kids loved it. Later we acted out the story of the Farmer and the carrot where, the farmer tries to pull the carrot out and he can't, so he gets his wife to pull with him, and they can't and they keep adding farm animals to help. The children had fun pretending and acting out pulling out the carrot.

We used the fun back rollers with primary colors on large paper to paint with today. We had tulip shapes with glitter paint at the easel.

We sang " The May song", we did a lady bug color game, we sang a song about the Insects in the garden. We did some letter Z activities and a beginning letter sounds game using the letters M-R.

We had water in the water table and the kids used foil, and styrofoam cups to make boats.

Oak Room:

We read "The tiny seed" by Eric Carle

We decorated house shapes and we planted grass in an empty 1/2 gallon juice container cut low. It will be the front lawn to our houses.

We had rainbow colors at the easel.

We did a fun action song, called "Sammy" by Hap Palmer and we did some bean bag balancing actions to music.

We did an alphabet sorting board- pictures that started with each letter were put into the corresponding letter pocket. A good followup to our finishing learning the letter sounds to the alphabet.

We had the estimating jar out today too, how many animals are in the jar?

We had a busy, busy day.
