Trinity Preschool Activities for Friday, January 10, 2014

Willow Room:  MWF class

We read "Alphabet Mystery" by Audrey Wood

We are beginning to learn more about letters and today we started with the letter A.  We asked the children "Do you have the letter A in your name?"  We graphed the results. We talk about the sound the letter makes, and we looked at items that start with the letter sound. 
We will make a picture chart of things that start with the letter A, please bring in small pictures of things that start with the letter A for our chart.

We did a group art project, we had a large sheet of paper and letter stampers.  We also thought of words and used the letter stampers to create words on the paper.  

We used dot painters to make designs on paper at the easel.

We made a real snowman in our classroom!  We dressed him with a scarf and hat and gave him a carrot nose. We watched him all morning to see what would happen. (pictures posted on Trinity preschool mount prospect on face book).

We also brought snow in from outside and dripped water colors with eye droppers to make rainbow snow.

Oak Room: Pre- K class

We read Snowmen all year" by Caralyn Buehner

The children cut circles out of white paper and glued them onto a dark blue paper.  Then the children used markers to add details to the snowmen pictures.  When they were all done, they used a q-tip dipped in white paint to draw snow around their snowmen.  

We did 5 little snowmen rhyme, some hibernation rhymes, and tap your toe and follow me for music time today.

We continued to learn about the letter O.

we brought in dolls to our dramatic corner and doll accessories.  They children loved acting out taking care of the babies.

Maple Room: MWF class

We read "Tacky the Penguin" by Helen Lester

We did a cutting project and used dab a dot painters to paint on it.  We will turn them into penguins.
We had snow flake stencils at the easel with roller painters.

We had ice blocks and water colors with eye droppers to drip paint onto the ice blocks.

We had packing peanuts in our sensory table (looks like snow) and we had matching pairs of mittens (paper ones).  The children would find the pairs and use clothes pins to attach them to a clothesline. Great fine motor fun as well as matching fun.

We did letter I activities, acted out a 5 little penguins rhyme and played a winter version of "What's missing?"

We did The January song, Winter song, 5 little snowmen teasing Mr. Sun  for music today.  

Stay and Play:  

We read "Danny's first snow" by Leonid Gore

We strung packing peanuts onto pipe cleaners to make a snow flake.

We did "I can dance" and "opposites" for music time.

The children did some amazing block building creations today, and enjoyed they pizza shop in our dramatic corner.
