Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday, March 21, 2012
We played outside and had a great time enjoying the climbers, bouncers, balls, trucks and our friends just running around.
Stay and Play:
We decided it was so nice outside, we adjusted out food for the day and had a picnic! We wanted to spend as much time outside as we could. We read "Whoosh went the wind!" by Sally Derby. We painted using twirler brushes and stubby paint brushes.
We used scarves and sang Let's go fly a kite, and we sang the little fish.
We used the addition boards and practiced writing words on the magic boards. We also played a small group game with rhyming words, the children had picture boards and they had to reach into the box the find the words that rhyme with their boards.
Willow Room:: MWF class
Do you have the letter P in your name? Our rhyme was Jack and Jill went up the hill. We read One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish, by Dr. Seuss
We acted out the rhyme of Jack and Jill too.
We put a paper shaped like a pail in a covered pan and added prickle balls dipped in paint. We shook it around to make design on our Jack and Jill pails.
We sang "I like my hat" using paper hats, "finger bopping", "dog in school."
We are enjoying our pet doctor office in the dramatic corner.
we are amazed at all the flowers outside!
we are learning about the illustrator Eric Carle this week and I will do another BLOG highlighting our activities, but for now, we read "The Foolish Tortoise" by Richard Buckley and illustrated by Eric Carle. We also read "From Head to Toe" by Eric Carle. We watched a video narrated by Eric Carle about how he did The art for the Very Hungry Caterpillar.
We painted with different brushes, stampers, texture pads, to create paper that looks like t he kind Eric Carle uses in his collages.
At the easel we had turtle shapes with paint and tissue paper.
We did letter U activities, and we played a letter sounds game. We did the Brown bear (also illustrated by Eric Carle), March song, and underneath the broomstick ( 2 times) for music today.
We read "Stop that ball!" by Mike McClintock. we also read "I broke my trunk - another Elephant and piggie book.
We worked in our journal notebooks on letter Y pictures.
We played a guessing game, which ball is in the feely box- just by touching it. We had inch blocks and sequencing cards.
We did dancing with a ball, on our head, between our feet, between our knees, etc. We also did on the count of five ( hands inside the circle)
We had the estimating jar, how many golf balls do you think there are?
