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.

We sang:
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

Maple Room:

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

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.
