Trinity Preschool Activities for Monday, January 9, 2012

We played outside again today- it was a little windy and a bit colder than we expected, but it was wonderful to get some fresh air and run around outside. It looks like we will get at least one more day outside before colder air and snow are expected.

Stay & Play:
We read "When will it snow?" by Kathryn Whit

We made mesh prints for art. We stapled fruit mesh onto boards and painted over them, then pressed paper onto the top to make a print.

We did "Underneath the broomstick" , mitten rhymes, and some sing a long songs for music.

We did a clothespin mitten match game.

Willow Room: MWF

We asked the children today about things that start with the letter A.

We read "Alphabet Mystery" by Audrey Wood
We did the weather and days of the week at our 2nd circle

We made snowflake paintings today by dipping thread spool ends in white glitter paint and pressing them onto paper.

At the easel we had large snowflake shapes to decorate our room.

We sang "I like my hat" and we used paper plates as our hats, we also did the alphabet letter sounds song using letter cards.

We have rice in our sensory table and we brought in big foam colored blocks for building.

Maple Room:

We read "Diamond in the snow" by Jonathan Emmett

We did icicle painting- we used watered down white glitter paint and dripped it down a slant board with blue paper on it; then we sprinkled glitter on it. It looks like glimmering icicles.

We had watercolors at the easel.

We did the January song, A-A-A alphabet sounds song, Everybody clap your hands

We did letter K activities.

Oak Room- Pre - K class

We read "The mitten " by Jan Brett and The missing mitten

We cut out mitten shapes but left them connected. We used an eye dropper to add a few drops of paint to one side, folded the mitten over and pressed on it to make a matching print.

We sang "Come and get a mitten" "Cat lost his mittens (a felt board rhyme) and 10 little mittens.

We introduced the letter O today.
