Trinity Preschool Activities for Monday, April 9, 2012
We are changing up activities in each of the rooms, the Willow Room is doing planting, flowers, gardens, spring, butterflies, moth and preparing for Mother's Day activities. The Maple Room is doing butterflies, moths, spring, and Mother's Day activities and the Oak room is doing under the sea activities as well as Mother's Day preparations and a little spring time butterflies too.
Every year we order caterpillars and a luna moth cocoon for each classroom and love watching the transformation with the children. We always make it a big celebration to release the butterflies and moth out in the courtyard.
We all played outside today, with the temperatures going up and down, be sure to send jackets or sweaters to school.
Stay & Play : We read "The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog" by Mo Willems
We decorated fish shapes to add to the Oak rooms ocean mural.
We danced with scarves, did a shape matching puzzle- find the person who has the piece that matches yours.
We had some magnet objects on the board and the children had to guess which one was missing.

We are talking about the letter R and asked the children if their name begins with a letter R?
We planted our Mother's Day surprise.
