Trinity Preschool Activities for Friday, May 3, 2013

Willow Room- MWF class

We read "Mortimer's First Garden" by Karma Wilson

We asked the children "Do you have the letter V in your name?"

We used the bottom of tennis ball containers to make flower prints.

We painted with red rolling dot painters.

We practiced our Mother's Day songs.

We did a 5 little bunnies rhyme.
We looked at items that begin with the letter V.

Maple Room- Morning class

We acted out the story of "The Carrot"

We used cookie cutters in flower shapes to make prints on paper.
We had tulip shapes at the easel and we painted with textured brushes.
We practiced our songs for Mother's Day.

We "planted" a lima bean ( we put a wet paper towel and some lima bean seeds in a baggie on the window and will see what happens.

We read "A seed in need"- The first look at the plant cycle  and parts of the plant.

Oak Room: pre-k class

We read "Get busy, Beaver!" by Carolyn Crimi

We planted grass seed.  The children color a house shape with crayons and cut paper grass for the edges.  The grass seed becomes our lawn.

We had widgits building toys and magnetic letters out today.

We did a song that follows the musical scale "Here's a little bird" and "On my toe there is a flea".  We also practiced our songs for Mother's Day.

Stay & Play:
We read "An ant's Day off" by Bonny Becker

We made prints .  We painted a piece of paper.  On another sheet of paper we laid a variety of flower shapes and other shapes and pressed the painted paper on top.  When we pulled it off, we had a "negative print"

We did a sprouting seeds rhyme , follow the leader, and hands are for clapping for music time.

We also did some action songs and played musical chairs since we could not go outside or to the gym today.
