Trinity Preschool Activities for Friday, September 14, 2012

All of the classes played outside n the playground today.   What a beautiful fall day.

Willow Room- MWF class

We read "If you take a mouse to school" by Laura Numeroff
We did a group art project using tempra paint and potato mashers to make designs.

We had paint brushes and paint at the easels.

We did "Hello everybody" "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear" and "Late Last night" for music time today.

We added scissors and stencils at the free art table today.

We always talk about the weather and days of the  week at circle time.

Maple Room- morning class

We read "Franklin goes to school" by Paulette Bourgeois

We made potato masher prints on colored paper.  We had dab a doo painters at the easel.

We did "The September song, "5 little apples", and "Way up high in the apple tree" for music today.

We did a shape recognition game- find the bird, what shape is he hiding behind?

Maple Room- afternoon class

We read "Clifford's Family" by Norman Bridwell

We did finger painting with red and blue paint to make purple paint.

We had texture brushes at the easel for the children to experience painting with something other than brushes.

We did "Five little monkeys jumping on the bed" using a felt mitt as a prop. We also did the story of the "five little monkeys" on a CD.  We also did three versions of Itsy Bitsy Spider- regular, then a great big spider and then a teeny tiny spider. 

Oak Room- Pre- k class

We read "If you give a cat a cupcake" by Laura Numeroff.

We made paper cupcakes at art today.  We used a paper shaped like a cupcake and "frosted" it with a mixture that was made from shaving cream and glue.  We sprinkled them with confetti to look like sprinkles.  We wrote on the bottom what the children dictated to the questions If you give a _______ a cupcake.

We did the "ABC sounds song", "Tap your toe" and "Deep in the Jungle" for music today.

We asked the children to think of words that start with the letter A and made a list of all we could think of.

Stay & Play:

We read "Dixie and the class treat" by Grace Gilman

We did oil pastel pictures and then we painted over them with watercolors.  The watercolors don't paint on top of the oil pastels, only on the plain paper.

We did "Late last night" and Put your finger in the air" for music time.

We enjoyed some pizza today for snack.

We loved getting out to the playground a second time today.
