Trinity Preschool Activities for Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012

We played outside on the playground today.  

Willow Room- T/TH class (Terrific 2's and 3's)

Today was the first day with the children all together and staying the whole morning.  We keep thins simple, and try to help children learn the routine.  The children really enjoyed going out to the playground.  We had a few children who cried at first, but once we went outside, it helped.

Parents being consistent and making sure you are here when we open the door at the end of the morning will help. We expect all of the children to adjust quickly and until then, we will continue to comfort them and help them feel safe and cared for at our school.  (Sometimes this process is harder on parents than kids)

We read "Clifford's 1st school day" by Norman Bridwell

We had colored glue at the free art table and fun things to glue onto the paper.

We had Q-tips with paint at the table for art.

We had dry erase markers at the easels.

We did "List of dances" (a movement song by Jim Gill, "Tommy Thumb" a quiet hand movement song by Carole Peterson, and "Brown bear" (by Greg and Steve- based on the book by Eric Carle- one of our favorites and very soothing for children for music time today.

Oak Room- Pre- k class

We are continuing our If you...series and today we did "If you give a moose a muffin" by Laura Numeroff

We used scissors today to snip small pieces of paper.  Then we glued the paper onto muffin shapes to look like sprinkles.

We did "muffin shop", "5 little apples in a tree," and "The freeze dance" for music today.

We had our weekly "Mystery bag" filled with items that begin with the letter A- the children guess what might be in it. We will do this each week with our letter of the week.

Science experiment:  We took two hard boiled eggs and put one in milk and one in coke.  We will see what happens.  This will help show children why pop is harmful to your teeth.
