Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, January 16, 2014

Maple Room- Thursday class

We read "Emma Kate" by Patricia Polacco

We wrote our names with our fingers on a tray covered in salt.  This is good for a few reasons, first, for children who have difficulty holding a pencil, this gives them the control to make the letters, and secondly, it is a sensory experience which helps the mind remember the shape of the letter.  Try it at home, just pour some salt onto a cookie sheet.

We played number "basketball", they had to find the number paper and scrunch it up and shoot it into the basket.  

We did "The January song, "Alphabet sounds", "The button factory", and "the Pirate song" for music.

Willow Room- Terrific 2's and 3's class

We read "All you need for a snowman" by Alice Shertle

We asked "Are you wearing the color red today?"

We painted snowmen with a mixture of shaving cream and glue.  We piled the mixture onto a snowman shape and then the children added raisins, buttons, ribbon, etc. to decorate it.

At the easel we painted with red paint and red objects on shapes of things that would be red ( strawberries, apples, lady bugs, hearts, etc.)

We did a "5 little snowman rhyme", we did "I can make a snowman", "the snowflake song", and "everybody has a face" for music time.

Oak Room: Pre- K class

We read "The bears in the bed and the great big storm" by Paul Bright and Jane Chapman

We used thread spools and colorful paint to paint bright pictures.

At the easel we had spools that have wire handles through them so they roll, and we rolled them up and down on paper at the easel.

We did "Five bear cubs rhyme", "ZZZZZ! ZZZZ!, Snort", (we used rhythm sticks to tap out the words to the song, and we did "The tempo marches on" (we moved around the room tapping sticks to the song)

We asked the children "does your last name or yoru first name have hte letter P in it?

We took the children in small groups to another classroom to play BINGO Bears.
