Trinity Preschool Activities for Friday, January 6, 2012

We enjoyed another spring like day outside today. We had a great time outside!

Stay & Play: We did a story called "Stone soup" and we took the children in small groups to another quiet room and played a listening game. We played a CD with household sounds on it and BINGO boards. If they had that sound on their board, they put a marker on the spot.

We did watercolors for art with small brushes and we did Bean Bag boogie for music. We went outside too.

Willow Room: MWF class

We are starting to talk about a different letter each day in class; the sound it makes, words that start with that letter, and how to write that letter. Today was the letter A. We asked the children if they have the letter A in their name and we graph the results....a little math activity too.

We did the story "The mitten" by Jan Brett and we used magnets with the story on it to tell it.

We used stampers with winter items, like snowman, snowflakes, etc. on it to make prints on paper. We will turn them into window decorations for our room.

We had alphabet letters at the easel.

We sang Ring the bells, and Turn around.

We added rice to our sensory table with scoops, spoons, and cups.

Maple Room:

We read "Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you hear?" by Bill Martin Jr.

We are making our own Polar Bear, Polar Bear book- so we had the children fold a sheet of dark blue paper in half, then they put a string attached to a clothespin into white paint and placed it between the folded paper. They pulled the string in between the folded paper and made a design. After they open the paper, they told the teacher what it looked like. We will make these the pages of the book, it will take turns going home.

At the easel we painted with fruit mesh rolled and taped to make a fun brush.

We sang The January song, Brown Bear, Going on a bear hunt

We put the blocks of ice in our sensory table and added water- so they were like ice bergs!

We practiced writing our letters A-J

Oak Room: Pre-k

"Sadie and the Snowman" by Allen Morgan and "There was a cold lady who swallowed some snow" by Lucille Colandro were our two stories today.

We had chunks of ice and watercolors, we used watercolors to paint them.

We made snowman pictures. The children used their cutting skills to cut three circles. Then they glued them to a blue piece of paper and added white snowflakes with a Q-tip. They look great.

We did some snowman rhymes, and "Movin everyday" using scarves.

We talked about words that start with the letter N
