Trinity Preschool Actitivites for Monday, Nov. 7, 2011

We played outside on the playground and used rakes and trucks to move the leaves around.

Willow Room: MWF class

We had the librarian from the Mt. Prospect children's library in to read to the children in our room today. What a nice treat! The library has such wonderful activities and materials for the children.

We asked the children if they have ever visited a library?

We used watercolors on coffee filters. We will turn them into colorful turkeys to hang in our room.

We had color shape magnets at the easel.

We did a color leaf song for music today.

We made a pretend horse for our dramatic corner, we had feed corn in our sensory table and the children picked the kernels off the corn- a great fine motor activity.

Maple Room:

We read "Run, Turkey, Run" by Diane Mayr

We also had the librarian read to the children in our class today.

We did corn cob rolling- we dipped corn in paint and rolled it back and forth in a box to make special prints.

We did "writing" with feathers at the easel. We painted with the pointy end of the feather.

We sang "Turkey in the straw", "November song", and "Turkey feathers" for music today.

We did letter E activities.

Oak Room:

We read The three little pigs story today and the children cut out house shapes from yellow paper. They glued them onto a big piece of paper and then added items to each to look like the three pigs houses. One had straw, one had sticks, and one had red paper cut to look like bricks. we then used a stamper shaped like a pig to put one over each of the houses. We will hang them in the hall.

We did "I know an old lady who swallowed a pie" 5 pigs in a house and 5 pigs go to town for music today.

We are talking about the letter I. We changed our dramatic play area into a building area with big blocks.
