Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday, November 9, 2011

We had wind, rain, and cold weather today- so we played inside. Our general policy is to stay inside if temps are below 40 degrees and/or the weather is bad outside.

Stay & & Play:

We made our own pizzas in stay & play today and we loved them! We also had pineapple and milk for our snack.

We had a story today about leaves, called "Leaf Man" by Lois Ehlert. It has beautiful pictures!

We didn't do an art project, instead the kids made their own individual pizzas for snack.

We did some sing-a-log songs, and used scarves to dance the freeze dance. We also did a song "Let's go fly a kite""

We had some giant building blocks to build with today and we had dry erase boards out with markers so the children could practice writing.

Willow Room: MWF class

We read "The cow that went Oink" by Bernard Most

We asked the children "If you could be an animal, which one would you be?"

We fingerpainted with chocolate pudding- then we stamped a pig shape onto it to make "Muddy Pigs"

We did the turkey hop song, please pass the peas, and Hello everybody, yes indeed.

We combined corn starch and water with some brown paint to make "mud". We added plastic pigs to play "Pigs in the play pen".

Maple Room:

We read "Sometimes its turkey, sometimes its feathers" by Lorna Balian

We used spools to paint with today to make designs on our headbands for our Thanksgiving feast.

We had turkey shapes with glue and feathers at the easel.

We sang "The November song", "Pass the Turkey", "5 little turkeys", and "stomp, stomp, clap".

we did some letter "E" activities and we played a missing letter game with the letters ABCDE

Oak Room;

The children acted out the story of the three little pigs using puppets

We worked in our journals today drawing pictures of words that start with the letter I

We danced to "Late last night", "Take the Bean bag" "Stomp, stomp, clasp" and we used instruments to the songs" Let's play in the bag"- we used bells, shakers, stickers.

Reading the letter "I" book.

Science activity: We spun a color wheel to see all the colors mix together.
