Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, Dec. 15, 2011

The Willow Room:

Before the program we used cereal to string onto yearn to make cereal necklaces.

The Terrific 2's and 3's class had their holiday party and program today and they did a wonderful job. They sang some songs and did a few holiday fingerplays for all the families- it was great. Then we all enjoyed some delicious punch and cookies together.

The Maple Room:

We read "If you take a mouse to the movies" by Laura Numeroff ; one of a series of books and this one is about Christmas.

We poked cloves in Clementine oranges- a great fine motor skill.

We did some kid pick songs, wheels on the bus, itsy bitsy spider, sticky bubble gum, months of the year, head and shoulders, and the December song.

Oak Room:

We read "The magic porridge pot" by Paul Galdone

We made hand print wreaths and did fingerpainting.
We had cookie cutter shapes with small brushes/paint and sponges at the easels. The children used the small brushes to paint the sponge, then they pressed the cookie cutter onto the sponge and onto the paper to make a print.

We put beads on pipe cleaners, worked on a letter M puzzle, and had the bristle blocks out today.

We did a song called "Must be Santa" using visual prompts and we did musical mats- when the music stops, find the action mat and do that action.

We asked the children if their name has a letter M in it?
