Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, November 10, 2011

We played in the gym today.

See our facebook page for pictures of the farm activities and the three little pig activities.

Willow Room- T/TH class

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

We asked the children "What color is your shirt?"

We fingerpainted with chocolate pudding and then we pressed a pig shaped paper onto it to make a muddy pig.

We sang "Hello everybody, yes, indeed", "Please pass the peas", and "turkey hop".

We mixed cornstarch water and brown paint to make "mud" and we added small plastic pigs. Messy and fun!

We have a stuffed animal chicken who is sitting on her nest and laying eggs!

Maple Room:

We read "The thanksgiving Bowl" by Virginia Kroll

We used stampers to paint on our vests we will wear for our Thanksgiving feast next week.

We did kid's picks of songs.

We played a color rhyming game.

Oak Room:

We read "In a people house" by Theo Lesieg and "My lucky day" by Keiko Kasza (a variation of the three little pigs story)

We cut a house shape that opens, we glued magazine pictures to fill the house.

We made another group project for a house of sticks. We also painted the cardboard tube house we made yesterday.

We had ABC magnetic boards out today.

We did some bean bag movement songs- "Take that bean bag" and we did an instrumental train song- we had to balance the bean bag while walking.

We asked the children if their name has a letter "I" in it. We did a rhyming activity where each child had a puzzle piece with a word on it and they had to find their partner with the word that would rhyme with theirs. Hearing the rhyme in words is a great pre-reading skill.
