Trinity Preschool Activities for Friday, October 11, 2013

Oak Room: 5 day pre-k class

We read "The growing story" by Ruth Krauss

We did a page in our "all about me book"  We did the favorite color page, the children drew a picture in their favorite color crayon.

We did "Spaghetti legs" and we played a letter matching game, upper case and lower case letters, the children come up and press a buzzer after they find the match.

We asked the children "What words start with the letter "E"? As they thought of words, we add them to the list.  

We did an experiment with color today.  You draw with a black marker on a white paper towel and then brush it with water and let it sit.  The colors that are in black will separate out.  Each child got to try it.

Maple Room:  MWF class

We read "There was an old lady who swallowed some leaves" by Lucille Colandro

We used eye droppers to put water colors onto paper towels.  We had leaf shapes at the easel with paint.

We have a large puppet of "The old lady who swallowed..." and we have props she eats, we used this today.
We did "the October song", "5 little pumpkins smiling at me", "Ten in the bed", and "Tommy Thumb" for music time.

We played a color memory game, which color is missing?  

Willow Room- MWF class

We read "No sleep for sheep" by Karen Beaumont.  We talked about what we knew about farm animals.

We painted with corn cobs.  We had painting with brushes at the easel. 

We did an apple rhyme "Tasty colored apples"

We did "Over the deep blue sea", "Everybody has a face", and "Tommy Thumb" for music. 

Stay & Play:  

We read "Grizzwold" by Syd Hoff

We mixed cornstarch, powder paint and vinegar and used the substance to paint our pictures.

We got a race track out and built it with the kids, they had fun making the cars go fast.

We did "We are the dinosaurs", we move to the music with maracas pretending to be dinosaurs.  We also did a ladybug color rhyme.
