Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, September 22, 2011

We played outside today on the playground. Remember jackets in this cooler weather, we play outside every day unless it is rainy (or playground too wet), snowy, or below 40 degrees. Then we will have our large motor activity time inside.

Willow Room: T/TH class

We read the classic story of "Caps for Sale" by Esphyr Slobodkina. It is a story about a man selling hats (caps) and how some monkeys stole his caps and he tricked them into giving them back.

We painted with pink and purple paint and crumpled Aluminum foil.

We had dab a dot painters at the easel.

We did the rhyme f little monkeys sitting in a tree and we used props to help tell the story.

We sang "I like my hat" by Carole Peterson and we used paper hats as we sang.
We also did the ABC letters sounds song with the sound cards.

We watched a squirrel running around outside, we think they are getting ready for winter.

Maple Room:

" If you take a mouse to school" by Laura Numeroff was our book today. We posted a question in the hall about what would a mouse do in our school and the answers ranged from "eat our snack" to "play with our toys".

We painted on big paper.

We sang "The September song, "There's a dog in school" and "Animal Action"

We did a science experiment with baking soda and vinegar- it bubbles and "explodes". The children were very excited about it.

Oak Room: Pre- K class

We are talking about our bodies and today we read a book about called "The skeletal system" by Helen Frost
We also read "Bend and Stretch" by Pamela Hill Nettleton

We glued Q-Tips on body shapes to illustrate bones.

We used the light table today, with X-rays so the children could see the bones, and we also had color transparencies.

We had out Magnetic writing boards.

We sang "Spaghetti legs" and "Toe, Leg, Knee", both songs by Jim Gill

We looked at pictures of x-rays today.

We asked the children if they had the letter "B" in their name. Last week all but one child had the letter "A" and this week only one child had the letter "B". The children are learning math concepts by graphing the results and talking about the comparisons.
