Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, January 12, 2012

The snow arrived today- we played inside, but enjoyed watching it outside our windows.

Willow Room: T/TH class

We read "Mouse Paint" by Ellen Stoll Walsh

We talked about what things are the color yellow?

We painted using liquid yellow paint, powder paint, yellow brushes, yellow sponges, yellow tooth brushes.....everything we painted with and used to paint with was YELLOW!

We did couch potato pokey, If you're happy and you know it, and list of dances for music time

We talked about yellow today, we had fun attaching all the yellow objects the children brought to our yellow color train.

Maple Room:

We read "Elmer in the snow" by DAvid McKee

We painted with salt water to create Elmer int he snow- then they created their own patchwork Elmers.

We used Frozen water colors at the easel.

We did the January song, Hands are for clapping, Tommy Thumb, and the Chicken Dance for music time.

Oak Room:

We read "The bears in the bed and the great big storm" by Paul Bright and Jane Chapman

We painted with thread spools, we dipped them in white paint and pressed them onto paper. Then we sprinkled silver glitter on the paint to look like sparkly snow.

We did some nursery rhyme sequencing cards, magnetic mazes, and writing boards.

We did wiggy, wiggy, wiggles, (fast and slow dance); and Sally the swinging snake" for music.

We asked the children if their name has the letter O in it and made a graph of the results.
We are working on learning our last names.
