Trinity Preschool Activities for Monday, January 23, 2012
Stay & Play: We listened to a book on CD called "Fox in Sox" by Dr. Suess - a book that has fun with words.
We mixed dish soap and powder paint ( the result looks like oil paint). We experimented with colors and we painted on paper.
We used musical mats- when the music stops, you put your hand or foot on the mat to follow directions.
We had fun with the post office in the Oak classroom today.
Willow Room- MWF class
We asked the children if they have a letter d in their name?
We read "All you need for a snowman" by Alice Schertle
We talked about the weather and days of the week at our 2nd circle.
We made our own snowmen out of shaving cream and glue mixture ( a great sensory experience)
We had alphabet letters at the easel.
Do you know the snowman song? using felt pieces to make a snowman
Everybody has a face
Come and join in the game
We had some sensory touch cards out today, and our Pizza shop was popular
We read "The Mitten" by Jan Brett
We cut mitten shapes for our classroom mitten book- we asked the children what animals would be in their mitten?
We had watercolors at the easel.
We used the parachute as a big pretend mitten and the children were the animals who got inside.
We did letter M activities
We had snow in our sensory table and we used water colors to drip color ontot he snow.
Oak Room- Pre- K class:
We read "Sleep Big Bear, Sleep" by Maureen Wright
We made paper snow globes- First we took a circle of contact paper, added glitter to it to look like snow and the children used small paint brushes to add white paint for snow. Then we placed a picture face down on the contact paper and added a stand. The we placed a second piece of contact paper to the back a picture and stand. They look so cute (SEE PICTURE ABOVE).
we did "Deep in the jungle" and used tom tom's to make a drum beat. We also did Old MC Donald had a drum using drums.
Our dramatic play area is now a post office.
