Trinity Preschool Activities for Monday, January 28, 2013

Willow Room- MWF class

We read "Snowy's special secret"
We are talking about the letter D this week so we asked the children "Do you have the letter D in your name?

We used thread spools to make snowy looking prints on dark blue construction paper with glitter paint.  We had powdered paint mixed with dish soap at the easel.  It makes a great texture that has an oil paint look to it.

We sang "Ring the bells, winter time is here".
"Turn around", and "Snowman song" for music time.
We looked at objects that begin with the letter D and talked about the sound the letter makes.
