Trinity Preschool Activities for Friday, November 8, 2013

Maple Room- MWF 

We read "The fox and the falling leaves" by Julia Rawlinson

We used spools to dip in paint and make designs on the headbands we will use for our Thanksgiving feast.  (Some kids are Indians and some are Pilgrims)
We had turkey shapes at the easel and we glued real feathers onto them.

We did "The November song", "Turkey in the straw", and "5 little turkeys" for music time.

We did Letter C activities, 

We had baking soda and vinegar mixed with food color with eye droppers. When they drop the vinegar onto the baking soda, it bubbles.

We played the missing numbers game- "What number comes before? " "What number comes after?"

Oak Room- 5 day pre-k class

We read "The three little wolves and the big bad pig" by Eugene Trivizas

We built with packing peanuts and colored glue for art.

We did "The turkey hop", we did a syllable tap using rhythm sticks (we tap the number of syllables in the word- example dog- one tap, elephant,3 taps.
We also did Marching band with rhythm sticks- the tempo marches on.

We talked about words that start with the letter I.

Willow Room- MWF class

We read "Fall leaves fall" by Zoe Hall

We made paper towel leaves.  The children colored on paper towels using red and yellow markers and then sprayed the markers with water to make the color spread. (See Nov. 7 post for a picture )

We asked the kids "Do you like to jump in the leaves?"

We did "leaves on the move", "I like my hat", "Sticky Bubble Gum" for music today.

We did a 4 little leaf rhyme.

we worked on fine motor skills by adding feathers to some turkeys (see Nov. 7 post for picture of turkey)

Stay and Play:

We read "Otto the book Bear" by Katie Cleminson

We made salt clay (equal parts flour and salt , and 1/2 as much water to mix.) and the children added beads and pipe cleaners to their creation.

We did "I changed my mind" and used ribbons.  We also did a shape train activity, each child has a shape and when that shape is called, they join the train.Then we will chug around the room.
