Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday, January 8, 2014

Welcome back- we have missed having everyone at school and this cold, cold weather has not even allowed for the kids to get out and have fun in all of the snow we have gotten.  We bring snow inside for the children to explore in our sensory tubs!  That is a great way to have fun with snow without getting so cold.

Willow Room- MWF class:

We read "The Hat" by Jan Brett
We asked the children "What color hat did you wear to school today?"

We glued yarn, fabric and pom poms on to a hat shape.
We colored with chalk on blue paper at the easel.

We did "I like my hat", "Couch Potato Pokey" and "Finger Poppin" for music today

We did a felt rhyme "My kitten's mittens".

We played with real snow in our sensory table and wore mittens.

Our dramatic corner is now a grocery store.

Oak Room- Pre- K class

We read "A little bit of winter" by Paul Stewart and "What do you remember" also by Paul Stewart

We worked on the letter O in our journals.  At the easel, we are painting paper plates brown to make bears for our bulletin board of bears hibernating.

We did "going on a bear hunt", "animal action", and "dog in school" for music today.
We are beginning to learn about hibernation .  We did our letter O word chart and we looked at items in our mystery bag that start with the letter O.

Maple Room: MWF class

We read "Diamond in the snow" by Jonathon Emmett
We did "icicle painting, we had slanted easels and traced our hands to make trees.  Then we dripped pale blue paint down the paper, like icicles on our trees.
We had water colors at the easel.

We did "Sticky bubble gum", "snowman, snowman", "Tap your toe and follow me", "The January song", and "Little Fish" for music today.

We did letter I activities.  

Our dramatic corner is now a pizza shop.

We brought snow into the classroom to play with it.

Stay and Play:

We read "Katy and the big snow" by Virginia Lee Burton

We drew with white crayons inside a snowflake stencil on white paper.  The we brushed blue glitter water colors over the top. The crayon shows up as it resists the water colors.

We did a rhyming song card sing a long, and we did the song B-O-O-T-S.

We had clay instead of play dough.
