Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Oak Room- Pre- k 5 day class

We read "One smart skunk" by Harriet Ziefert

We worked in our journal notebooks on pictures for the letter G.

We are learning about nocturnal animals.

We did a nocturnal animal rhyme and "on the count of 5" (a fun, movement song) for music today.

We used little legos to build with at the table today, and we enjoyed our purple moon sand.

Maple Room:  MWF class

We read "The little old lady who wasn't afraid of anything" by Linda Williams

We did marble painting today, we roll marbles that have been dipped in paint back and forth in a box.  We cut mini pumpkins in half and the pressed it on paper at the easel.

We did "Scarecrow", "October song", and "5 little pumpkins" for music today.
We skyped today with someone in Florida.

Willow Room: MWF class

We read "Pigsty" by Mark Teague

We asked the children "Do you like to play in the mud and get dirty?" 

We fingerpainted with chocolate pudding on pig shapes.

We had magnetic gears at the easel.

We did "The barnyard song,", "Jump down, turn around", and "Here we go round the mulberry bush" for music today.

We also did a 5 clean and dirty pigs rhyme.  We put animal stickers on our barn.

We used our muddy pigs mixture- mix cornstarch and water with a little brown paint and add plastic pigs, a great sensory experience.

Stay and Play:

We read "A friend for all seasons" by Mei Matsuoka

We painted using "tops", the children spun the tops on the paper after they were dipped in paint. Besides being a fun painting experience, this is a great fin motor experience.

We did "The airplane song" using ribbons and we did "Clap if you want to" for music today.

The children enjoyed playing with dolls in the dramatic corner.

We had dried beans and plastic pumpkins in our sensory table.

    I was looking for something different for Art for the farm theme when I ran across the muddy pigs idea. I'm thinking on changing my sensory activity ( picking corn off the cob) to this muddy pig activity. I think the children will love it, and its inexpensive too. :-)
