Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Oak Room:  pre-k 5 day class

We read "The shape of me and other stuff" by Dr. Seuss and the letter E book.  WE also read "Rain brings frogs, a little book of hope"

We worked in our journals on letter E pictures and words.

We did "She'll be coming around the mountain" and "I can dance" (sit still, stand up and dance)

We are weighing and measuring how tall the children are. 

We used inch cubes to measure how long things were, a line on our rug, our feet, etc.

Maple Room- MWF class

We read "A color of his own" by Leo Lionni and "Pete the cat, I love my white shoes" by Eric Litwin

We made glue sun catchers.  The children squeezed glue onto wax paper and add a few drops of food color.  hen they used a toothpick to swirl the colors around.  We used the primary colors, red, yellow and blue.
Swirling the colors together in the glue to see what colors you can make.

The children squeezed glue onto wax paper, and then use eye droppers to add color.

Color swirling was fun!

We did "The October song", "Wiggy, Wiggy, Wiggles", and "Toe, Leg, Knee" for music time.

We did scat the cat- a color rhyme, we did a color mixing experiment, and we practiced writing our names.

Willow Room- MWF class

We read two stories today.  "Can you find my breakfast?" a felt board story and "My five senses" by Aliki

We painted with Jello for the sense of smell and watercolors for our sense of sight.

We had magnetic face pieces at the easel.

We listened to animal sounds and tried to guess which animal was making the sound.  We asked the children "What is your favorite animal?

We did "Good day" by Carole Peterson (animals sounds song), "Animals on the farm" we did it to the tune of The wheels on the bus.  and "When I was a little fish" by Susan Salidor

Stay & Play:

We read "Milo and the magical stones" by Marcus Pfister

we did "Sticky bubble gum" and "Tap your toe and follow me" for music time.

We painted with cars and trucks on big sheets of paper.  This activity uses large arm movements.
