Trinity Preschool Activities for Monday, October 3, 2011

We played outside today- beautiful weather!

Today was our first day of Stay & Play (extended care)
We had bananas, crackers and yogurt for snack with milk.
We had extra time outside, and we made a nature wreath for art; we glued leaves onto a wreath shape.

For music we danced with scarves to "Moving everyday" and "Sally the swinging snake"

For story time we read "The boy who cried wolf" by BG Hennessy

Willow Room: MWF Class

We are talking about Apples and we told a flannel board story called "The little red house with no doors and no windows and we used a real apple!

We asked the children if they had ever seen a house with no doors or windows?

We made apple prints using real apples and tempra paint. We cut the apple in half cross wise (which reveals a stat inside)- dipped it in paint and pressed onto paper.

We had magnetic shapes at the easel.

We sang "Put your hands up in the air" "Hello everybody" and "Little Old Wagon" for music time today.

Maple Room:

We read "The biggest pumpkin ever" by Elizabeth Bennett

We used orange paint and painted and stuffed paper bags to look like pumpkins.

We played an alphabet game in small groups

We have a new month and a new month song- the October song, we also sang "the months of the year." Letter sounds" and "Bean Bag Alphabet Rag"

Oak Room:Pre- k class

We read "The Apple Story" and cut an apple in half to see what was inside and we read "Applesauce Season" by Eden Lipson

We made applesauce. The children cut up apples to help make the sauce.

We sang "A-P-P-L-E, "Way up high in the apple tree", and "5 little apples"

We did a taste test with apple slices to see which was hte favorite. The results are posted outside our room.

We also did a science experiment to see what happens to apples once cut- we coated one in milk, one in lemon juice, and one with water.
