Trinity Preschool Activities for Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Oak Room:  5 day pre- k class

We read "10 apples up on top" by Theo Leseig

We also read "Little Mouse and the big red apple"

The children used a tall piece of paper and they drew a picture of themselves at the bottom of the paper.  Then they used an apple shape sponge to add apples "on top", like our story.  They counted the number of apples and we wrote on the paper "Name has 9 apples op top"; for each child.

We did an apple taste test.

We did "Way up high in the apple tree" and "I like my hat" for music.

We used bean bags on our heads to pretend they were apples, like our story.

Willow Room:  Terrific 2's and 3's class

We told the children a story about an apple that has no windows or doors, with a star inside.  Then we cut the apple in half crosswise and revealed a star. (The seeds are held in a star shape inside the apple)

We used the apple we cut for art, we made prints on paper by dipping the apple in paint and pressing it on paper.

We had tongue depressors which are painted bright colors with magnets on the back at the easel.The children can make shapes or designs with them on the magnet board.

We did a Mr. Apple worm rhyme. We also used a puppet mitt to do "Old McDonald had a farm song"

We did "walking shoes" and "Pass the bean bag" for music time.  

Our dramatic play area is now set up as a farm and we have hay and animals in our sensory table.
