Trinity Preschool Activities for Monday, November 5, 2012

Willow Room- MWF class

We read "Pumpkin Cat" by Anne Mortimer

We asked the children if they new where pumpkins grow?
We did "Come and buy a pumpkin" at our second circle time.

We made pumpkin prints by using real mini pumpkins cut in half, dipped in paint and pressed up and down onto our paper. We used orange pant.

We did "Pumpkin in the red barn", "face the facts," and "give me a clap" for music  time.

We cut open a real pumpkin at choice time and talked about what we found inside, we discussed the texture (touch) and smell.

Maple Room:  Morning class:  

We read "Thanks for Thanksgiving" by Julie Markes

We cut feathers for our classroom Thanksgiving turkey.  The children said what they were thankful for and we will write the answers on each feather.

We had feather painting at the easel.

We did "Turkey feathers", The November song, and Funny fall animals" for music time.

We did letter F activities- letter sounds, and asked the children "Do you have the letter F in your name?

Maple Room- Afternoon class

We did Jack and Jill, and Old Mother Hubbard nursery rhymes today.  

we cut out feather shapes and the children told us something they are thankful for at art time today.

We used paint with brushes at the easel.

We did "The pirate ship" , "Little Fish," and "Today is Monday" for music time.

Today we were learning about the shape "Square".

Oak Room- Pre- K class

We read the story of the "Three Little Pigs".  We also read "The great monster hunt" by Norbert Landa

We cut out house shapes and glued them onto a blue paper background.  Then we glued straw on one, sticks on another and "bricks" on the third.  We used a stamper shaped like a pig to add pigs to our houses.

We changed our dramatic play area into a building center with many different kinds of blocks.  
We are learning about the letter I this week.

Stay & Play: 

We read "Ready for anything!" by Keiko Kasza 

We dripped paint onto paper, then we covered the paper with wax paper and used a rolling pin to smush the paint. When we pulled up the wax paper, we had a design on that as well as on our paper.

We did "Twist and shout" and "Hokey Pokey" using ribbons and bells to dance to the music.
