Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, November 3, 2011

Wow- what a change in the weather! Today is cold and super windy! We played with trikes, tunnels, a teeter toter alligator and a tossing game in the gym today.

Willow Room: T/TH class

We read "Whose home?" by Keith Faulkner

We used farm shaped stampers and dipped them in pastel colors of tempra paint to make prints.

We had chalk at the easel.

We danced to the song "silly dance contest" by Jim Gill and we did a Farm Animal sounds song Good day.

We have hay in our sensory table, farm puppets, and pretend farm animals in our barn. We have numerous farm related activities in our room.

Maple Room:

Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano was our story today. We did straw painting. We watered down tempra paint and dripped them onto paper using an eye dropper. Then we blew through a straw to move the paint on the paper.

We sang the November song, and then let the kids pick what they wanted to sing- they chose- Months of the year, Twinkle Twinkle little star, little fish, and Teddy bear, Teddy Bear turn around.

We played a color memory game and we worked on learning about patterns. The teacher made a pattern on a dry erase board and the each had to figure out what came next in the pattern.

Oak Room:

We read "Owl Babies" by Martin Waddell adn "Whooo's there" by Mary Serfozo

We painted with shower puffs.

We had out Mr. Potato head, number matching puzzles, and mosaic art pieces.

We did an action song called "Can you leap like a frog?" the "H song, and the November song.

We asked if their name has the letter H in it?

We did an experiment today on cleaning copper pennies. We used plain vinegar, vinegar and salt, soapy water and plain water. First the children guessed what they thought would work best, then we tried the different solutions and saw what worked and what did not. The vinegar and salt worked best, followed by plain vinegar. The water and soapy water did not do anything to clean the pennies. After we did it as a group, we put the solutions and some pennies with Q-tips at a table and the children were able to try it on their own.
