Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, December 1, 2011
We played outside today- the weather it right at that border where it will be warm enough some days and too cold on others, but if we can get out for a few minutes, we plan to. Please remember coats, hat,s mittens, and scarves. We do not go out if there is snow on the ground so no need for snow pants.
We read "The mitten" by Jan Brett This is a great story- read it with your child sometime.
We asked the children "Did you wear your mittens today?"
We worked on our ornaments today.
We also practiced our holiday songs for our Christmas program.
We are having a great time in our bakery shop and with our peppermint pink play dough.
We read "Froggy bakes a cake" by Jonathan London
We mixed a special dough up and cut out cookie shapes for our bakery. We baked them and will decorate them later.
We practiced our holiday songs today.
We read "Gingerbread Baby" by Jan Brett
We decorated Gingerbread boy shapes using a glue/shaving cream mixture with looks like puffy paint when it dries. We added rick rack, lace and buttons. The children used plastic knives to "frost" their ginger bread men.
We had out lacing cards, and a magnetic community maze.
We had real pine needles at the easel to use as brushes for our painting.
We did a 5 little gingerbread rhyme and we practiced our holiday songs.
We asked the children if their name has a letter "K" in it?
We mixed up yeast bread dough to use at the playdough table.
